Loving the new app.
have had no problems with the app on my ideos x5 =)
One thing i would really like is a rotation lock.
I read in bed at night some times on my side and would rather it stay in landscape mode at all times.

Thanks for greeat app cant wait for a buy version.

I use my A500 and it has this nifty lock at the side.

But I'll add something.

I highly recommend the 'rotation lock' option.

I'd also like to have this in-app, even if the GTab has it in the status menu.

Ideally in the options you are able to set "lock to portrait" / "lock to landscape" / "lock to portrait except for two page spreads" / "use device settings". The application should then just ignore whatever it is happening with the device and the device rotation lock.

Example of situation when it is useful that comicrack does not listen to device settings
(1) on a phone I often lock the device in portrait mode as that is the most often used position for phonecalls, diaries, e-mails etc - however I want to read comcis in landscape mode so that I can actually appreciate the art,etc
(2) on a tablet I often lock the device in landscape mode as it is more convenient for web-brosing, however I lock the comics into portrait as I have a screen big enough to let me enjoy the 1-full page experience

P.S. and the lock is useful just because I do a lot of reading at weird angles :P

There's an app called "Smart Rotator" that blocks apps from rotating unless they are allowed. Works well for all the ones that haven't implemented the feature yet.
