lost at boot, but persistent otherwise If this had an option to set the service at boot then I'd give it 5 stars. That's the only shortfall of this app. It's a must have for people who want control of their device or those with non-traditional set ups that can't simply be rotated. edit-- reduced it to three stars. While it works if it won't autoload at boot then it's pointless.
Works great by itself The tasker plug-in didn't seem to work though. I use this to force dumb apps like ESPN and AtBat to respect the screen's rotation. Works fine when run manually, but when run by Tasker the apps just do their default rotation.
Awesome - These features should be built into android The persistent auto orientation is extremely useful. I use my phone with a kickstand and bluetooth keyboard to respond to email. It's a huge pain that the home screen doesn't orient itself in landscape when the phone is turned (especially considering it does this with tablets). Your awesome, light, free app has made my phone infinitely more usable in this scenario. I would pay for this app.
Amazing, other developers should follow this guy's lead! Works exactly as advertised, takes next to no space, doesn't run anything futile in the background. Even works on apps that do not natively support the chosen orientation (my main reason for downloading the app). Also works fantastic for automatic rotation control for in-car use in combination with e.g. Tasker.
Very useful and part of my regular phone usage The gyroscope broke on my phone so auto rotation no longer works. I use this app to manually adjust the screen orientation. I use it on the pie controls from the LMT launcher for quick access when I need it. This is useful for things like navigation (e.g., Waze) where I want landscape for my car dock and portrait for handheld navigation. With this app, locking the orientation is very useful and now preferable for my phone. I fixed my gyroscope and I still use this app daily. Thanks for this!
The current Amazon Alexa app is only supporting portrait mode, but this app fixes the Amazon app! As I own a tablet not a phone (wish there were tablet phones (using external Mic/ear)), this app looked like a solution, but it will not stay locked!
+ Expose to Google TV
+Added a footer note to the menu
+Added a widget to lock into whatever your orientation happens to be at the time of click. This is useful for reverse landscape for example.
+Short click on portrait/auto will behave like default android portrait/auto. If you want to enforce "auto" long press on it (that way, even the apps that don't go into landscape will).
+Added ability to run a persistent background service for both Portrait and Auto modes.
