Quick Tip: Do not rely on hardware orientation or actuation

Users with motor disabilities may not be able to manipulate hardware or a mobile device, and certain sensor actuations and inputs may not be possible. Ensure content works in both horizontal or vertical orientation. Do not rely on motion actuation (such as shaking or panning the device) or pointer gestures (such as swiping or dragging).
