I understand that user could associate the symbols of each game pad button
(square, circle, etc.) to mean certain things, But in Read Activity is not
the case, is like an exception. Users will associate "Down" And "Up" buttons
(depending on the screen position) with the PageUp PageDown action.
So, in my opinion and the experiencie of teachers in schools, will be more
intuitive for user change the action of each button when screen rotate.
Do yo know if I can catch the screen rotate event in the activity?
Thanks for your answers.
