Subject Re: Camera API: correctOrientation

That's the PhoneGap 1.7 docs you linked - when you look at the Cordova 3.2 docs (,
it does not list _any_ issues with correctOrientation on Android or iOS. I expect it not to
work on Windows Phone because it's listed in the docs as being a limitation, but not on Android
or iOS.

I'm not a newb; I'm not asking because I'm too stupid to look in the documentation first.
I've written a book on PhoneGap as well as a book on Cordova 3.0, so I know how most of this
works and to look at the docs first. I'm hoping that I don't have to begin any question with
"I've already looked in the docs, but..."

I started with the documentation and all it says is:

"Rotate the image to correct for the orientation of the device during capture"

Not a very clear description of what actually happens. You're right though, I'm not really
asking what it's supopsed to do, but instead "does it work?" and if so, "Any idea why it isn't
working for me?"

I've written an application that takes a picture without the option defined and with the option
set to true as well as false and on Android or iOS devices; I can't see any difference in
the photos for all three options.

So, am I missing something and this just not supposed to work? Or is something else biting
me in the butt here?
