(09/09/2022) Moto-touring used this 3 times in 3 weeks, got familiar with it. Has some minor issues but not enough to uninstall. Screen in 180° position but every 5 minutes it rotates itself upright then returns to 180. No big issue but so far it hasn't happened when I'm using GOOG-Maps, that could be a big issue, so far not. Using this app I noticed these not-so-smartphones could use a charge port at each long end. But then this app wouldn't be needed. SO... so far it's a keeper.

Used many other screen orientation apps and sticking with this one. Works as well as any, but has extensive options for personalization. Most of all though what sets it apart is the developer(s). Extremely helpful and has genuine sincere interest in making a great app. If unsure, read some replies and you can tell they actually read users comments and considers suggestions and issues. Number one sign of a great app that will continue to improve and something you can be confident purchasing.

Can't get this app to change the orientation to reverse portrait on Google maps automatically on my S22 Ultra. Thanks for the response. Sensor portrait works to get the reverse portrait and/or standard portrait working in google maps, but removes the ability to do landscape. Hopefully you get this figured out! A lot of people use this, not sure why it was removed. Keep us posted!

Hello Brian! Kindly update to the latest version (24.7.x) as it has a custom implementation for the Full sensor mode to enable reverse portrait orientation in most of the apps.

What's new

Improved support for Android 13.
Overhauled orientation functionality.
Updated design based on latest guidelines.
An all-new start to make things even better.

Please re-enable the accessibility service in case of any issues.
