Preventing screen rotation - good idea

    I'm currently building an app. All the functionality is in place, I just have to work on the styling.

    So far I've been working in primarily in portrait mode. The app still works in landscape, but it looks a bit rubbish. I was planning to correct this so it looked better in landscape, but after sketching a few designs, it's still going to look a bit rubbish in landscape mode when compared to portrait.

    So what approach would you take:
    - Lock the app to only work in portrait
    Or
    - Add styling for landscape as best you can, accepting that it doesn't look as nice

    You could choose to lock the app in portrait mode.
    Many apps do this, especially ones that don't work well in a particular mode for one reasonor another.

    Just keep in mind that there are apps that allow the user to override this setting.
