Maybe its me (actually I am pretty sure it is me), but I don't understand why it is so bloody important that an app rotate? As long as the app does what I want it to do, its really not that hard at all to rotate the iPad itself rather than expect the app to rotate.
As a matter of fact, now that you mention it, while some apps look great in portrait mode, they do not translate as well in landscape mode. Some apps that do rotate probably shouldn't!
I know, at least I have a choice in which way I hold my iPad and I am not forced to hold it one way or the other. *****, *****, *****! Some people would complain if they were hanged with a new rope!

Lol, it's problematic, especially when have to hold iPad upright cause it's charging, and I'm laying on my bed, I have to put it on a angle with the corner of my iPad digging in my chest!
Anyway, I play chess a lot, the chess.com don't rotate, I know a few Facebook and Twitter apps that don't, few games, like Tetris don't..
But it's not that big of a deal anymore, the main one that I really HATED is the chess.com app..but just yest. I got a new app FICS app and THAT rotates!

Well, a website like chess.com shouldn't have to be programmed to rotate...it's a web app and they probably didn't think that the majority of their customers would be using it on a device that can rotate (which, btw is only the iPad).
And for those apps that annoy you, use that lock switch to your advantage. Lock it in the orientation you want it. That's what it's there for! I use it for the opposite...the apps rotate when I don't want them to, so I lock them in place!
