Thanks to the dev for explaining how to import and export settings. However the app's theming is excessively granular while the interface to customize it is extremely unintuitive. It is unclear what is being changed. The save button is part of the preview. There is both a "color" and "tint color" for every color option. I repeatedly ended up with unviewable text. And I can't figure out which color I need to change because the preview colors don't match the displayed colors.

EDIT: Hello Aaron! Thanks for the feedback. You may have "background aware" enabled. Kindly scroll down to the bottom and change it to "Disable" and then it will show you the exact colors in the preview as well. You try theme presets via the Palettes app to speed up the process or import a QR Code via:

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.

This has been an invaluable resource for me over the past few years. It has been able to rotate all apps, including the main screen of the Hangouts App that the phone's default app rotation could not accomplish. I recently transitioned to the Samsung Galaxy S20 and now the rotation no longer works for the Hangouts App main screen. It still works on the compose message screen though. I duplicated the settings that existed on my old Galaxy S8, but still no luck. If this were to be fixed, my rating would be 5 stars again.
