restricted rotation dev alpha

When I run my application on dev alpha built with ndk 10 I can only get orientation change or notified of orientation change when dev alpha is 0 or 90, so no upside down for my app, is this correct or should i be doing something to allow all angles?

 

thanks for any input you can offer me.

Re: restricted rotation dev alpha

Although the device can obviously sense any rotation, for purposes of the UI orientation it appears BB10 generally supports only the one portrait, and both landscape orientations. You're not alone in observing this.

Depending on your use case, either just accept this and carry on, or use the accelerometer or other info to get the required input. It doesn't appear necessary for us to have our apps support the "top is down" orientation.
