  • how are you testing this? I think its a known issue that the emulator ignores this property

  • I believe this Blog Post here: http://www.kraigbrockschmidt.com/2013/09/05/locking-orientation-supported-rotations-manifest/ explains the whole situation in detail. You can only really test the preferences of the App on a real device which switches the orientation using the Accerlerometer.
