XAP Landscape issues.

Using the XAP in the landscape orientation creates two issues. 

1. When in landscape the touches do not swap orientation. This requires when you want to touch the left side of the screen to click on the right side and when you want to touch the top of the screen you must touch/click on the bottom of the screen. 

2. IF when using XAP in landscape you quit XAP. The next time XAP is launched it is started in landscape. This is fine, however android does not recognize XAP is in landscape and starts in portrait mode. 

The attached screen recording displays each of these scenarios.
