    Anyone figure out how to rotate apps in the direction you want?

    I like playing What's the Difference, a photo game. The only problem is that I like my screen locked with the home button on the left. This app won't rotate in my direction. Anyone figure how to change this?

    Nothing you can do. The dev needs to fix it.

    With my initial iPad apps (I'm a developer), they only supported portrait, but when I updated them, Apple was pretty adamant (i.e. they rejected them) that they support upside down orientation. I've since rewritten the apps to support all four orientations. So, it's likely that your app's developer will have to do the same for the next update. But contact them. You might find better support from that $0.99 app than you get from a $99 traditional software application.

    I'm not particularly thrilled that We Rule will only rotate to portrait in one direction and it's the opposite direction from the way that the apple case makes a wedge.
