About this app

The 1st non-widget AutoRotate app that got 100k-500k downloads! Thanks all users!

Switch Auto-rotate feature on/off quickly. Put it as a shortcut in the home screen or long-press search button to run it.

Tired of lying on the bed and your device changes to landscape mode?
Don't you find it inconvenient to change the "Auto-rotate screen settings" using the setting menu?

This app aims to solve these issues.
You could now long-press search key / tap the shortcut to switch the auto-rotate feature.

To reduce memory usage, this app is not a widget (so the icon cannot show the rotate settings) & it'll kill itself after it runs.

Limitations:
• Long-pressing search button to toggle function could not work on Defy, Droid 2 & device without search key
• Some apps (e.g. Battery Graph) do not follow the auto-rotate screen settings in Settings->Display (which can be changed by this app), thus it could not work for those apps.
• "Lock orientation" (Lock landscape) is not possible as Google only allows portrait lock on others' app by design officially.

This is exactly what I was looking for! The other orientation rotation apps are overkill. All I need to do is quickly turn off or on the auto rotate, because it's too sensitive on my Droid Turbo 2, and rotates when I don't want it to. This solves that simply and elegantly. I'm going to switch to the donation version, because this is surely worth it. Thanks Ken!
