Accelerometer Readings Get Swapped Sometimes

I'm trying to make a game in which I want a yellow circle (sprite) to move in the canvas based on device orientation using accelerometer (I'm not using orientation sensor on purpose).
I want the game to be in landscape, so I set screen orientation to landscape.

When I ran the app, it worked as intended. The ball was moving in the direction in which I tilted the phone.
But then I accidentally pressed the back button. When I opened the app again (Note: the app was running in background; It didn't close completely), it started behaving weirdly. When I tilt down it goes leftwards, when I tilt right it goes downwards.
Also, this happens 70-80% of the time, not always. I'm I the only who is facing the issue. Please anyone let me know what to do.

In this extension

Use the OnPause Event to detect the app close. If closed set the ball speed to 0.

Hello Kaustubh

While your App is running, it can take command of the Back Button - so set it to do nothing.

The reason I put 'something' in the Back Pressed Block is to emphasis the Block is there for a reason.
