Did everything discussed in the article and the app still will not rotate. Coworkers with the same app do not have this issue

    If you haven't got rotation lock on (other apps and/or the homescreen rotate ?) then try closing the app that isn't rotating via the taskbar and see if it rotates when you re-open the app : from the home screen (i.e. not with the app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.


    If that doesn't fix it then also try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
