Switching FlickType between portrait and landscape when "Lock rotation"is switched on

Field, S. (Scott)

Hi Ashley and Kosta

Would it be possible to allow FlickType to go into landscape mode even if lock rotation is on?  I believe that the Overcast app overrides the IOS setting for rotating lock so it may be possible.  The reason is simply that with voiceover  reading a webpage, email or any lengthy piece of text, the reading stops if you inadvertently move the phone into landscape mode and then you have to set it to read again.  This is why I keep my phone’s lock rotation switched on.  I then need to switch it off when I want to type a long piece of text using FlickType and then remember to switch it  back on after typing, something I almost always forget to do.  I can imagine that this is not possible with a third-party keyboard, but thought it to be worth asking.

Thank you
