swipe down from the top of your screen and in the upper left you'll see a Locked/Unlocked toggle - toggle it off

If your Fire says Unlocked... does the Fire stay in the same attitude (vertical or horizontal) all the time, or just with some apps?

I want to read books horizontally on kindle app. Since ios7 they are stuck in vertical. Can you help?

CBRetriever says:
no, because I don't know anything about kindle apps - I'd suggest posting a new question with ios7 in the title and someone who knows can probably help you

That did not work for me.

what did not work for you?

and was it all the time or just in certain apps?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 10, 2014 6:57:06 AM PST
The lock and unlock button. My apps work. It only does it when I get on the web.

Sorry I didn't mean to press (you was ignoring me) button. I was trying to press (YES) it was helpful button

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 10, 2014 7:15:00 AM PST
It will not rotate back to vertical

I can't even see that, but I'm trying to figure out if you're using a Kindle Fire and whether or not you're talking about the Web browser when you use the Web tab

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 10, 2014 7:24:56 AM PST
I'm using a Kindle Fire and I am using the web tab. That's when it gets stuck on horizontal view

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 10, 2014 7:28:41 AM PST
I turned it off then back on and it fixed it

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 10, 2014 7:28:59 AM PST
Is it all websites, or just one?
