Subject How does orientation work, and what is shouldRotateToOrientation?
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 05:38:14 GMT
Hey folks,

I’ve had a bug forwarded my way where a Cordova app wouldn’t switch orientation on iOS
unless the following code was present:

function onDeviceReady() {
    window.shouldRotateToOrientation = function (degrees) {
        return true;

Could someone please explain why it is needed? Is this in one of our plugins? And perhaps
also: what else/instead is needed to have a Cordova app properly support flipping of screen
