Incorrect AndroidManifest value

In the “Build a Weather App” series, “Start at the center” video: near the end, the instructor says to set the screen orientation element in the “application” tag in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

This is incorrect, the screen orientation element is set in the “activity” tag. Link to API documentation below

        <activity android:name=".MainActivity"
