    That is the ad for Geico insurance. You play Tropic Escape with your iPad so that the long side is horizontal. For that ad you need to turn the iPad so the long side of your iPad is vertical.
    Your iPad is usually held like a movie screen. You need to turn it so the screen is like a legal document or a letter.

    When i try to watch videos to collect gems i am told to have my device in landscape mode. My device is in landscape mode but the videos will not play.

    Its the progressive video with flo playing scrabble. It plays the video, froze my tablet and I restarted the tablet, now wont let me collect the gems. Shows the video then goes off with no way to collect.

    I realized today that the ad is Progressive Insurance not Geico insurance. But you need to rotate your iPad for that ad.

    Lately I have been getting the same video from Progressive. You can't go past it and I don't want to sign in to anything. It sucks!

    Did you turn your device when it says landscape mode detected? After i turn my device, video plays and Gem is awarded.


    Loving the newest update!!

    2 days worth of videos and no gems + the progressive insurance video wants you to turn sideways or it wont play and after you do the game seizes up
