Phone Rotation Lock

Hi guys,

I am currently using BDK to pop my app on the App Store / Playstore. Is there a way to lock my app to portrait orientation?

Very much appreciated :slight_smile:

Yes there are ways. If you use the BDK build to make your app it has an option to lock to just “Portrait” or “Landscape”

From what I remember, this plugin element for orientation lock is android only in BDK. Has this changed to support iOS as well now? If not, I saw there is a CSS hack which helps for now. It detects the phone is in landscape and rotates 90 degrees to recreate portrait.

From what this says anyways it is for iOS as well


Hey Jocobsphinx, where do you find that menu for those options?

When you choose “Start a native project” in BDK. It’s is one of the very first options after you name your app

Great thanks heaps

can you please share css hack?

Where can I find the option? I have already developed my App and just want to lock it to portrait
