Perfect!!! I got this for my tablet because I was tired of asking how to auto rotate my screen in the forums and tech support sites. To be honest, I really didn't believe it would work, or I'd need to press this button, or swipe the screen or do something else, but no, just download the app and touch it, then, forget about it. It's perfect ...... A BIG thank you to Kenneth Cheng for this app!!!
Simple Works great and is easy. Just long-press search button and it toggles auto-rotate function transparently (short-press still gives you the current applications expected functionality). If you are laying on your side and the screen rotates to landscape unwantedly, just long-press search and it flips back to portrait. Also, each time you long-press search button you get a small on screen message for 2 seconds saying whether auto-rotate is being toggled "on" or "off", so you always know where you are at. Thanks.....
Fixed Nexus 7 2013. I had big problems with auto rotate in any direction disabled by badly written apps, (and professional ones too). I have to reboot to restore it. Nexus 7 has auto rotate button anyway but this app seems to repair the bug bad apps leave behind. Well nice one!
Simple. Works. Great for ATRIX. No intelligence. Just press icon to freeze in portrait.
Broken on Jelly Bean The Jellybean update to the Sprint Galaxy S2 puts the Voice Command in the long hold of the search key. So i cannot quickly turn on/off autorotate anymore. I tried an uninstall and reinstall but did not work. Needs an update so can work again! It was so useful before!
THANK YOU In an attempt to reduce my phone to a single home screen and lock screen, I needed a way to turn on/off auto rotate via an app and not a widget. Basically needed to get it in a folder if at all possible. This fit the bill perfectly.
• Rewrite core codes to make it work much faster.
• Fix launching problem in some devices (e.g. Evo)
• Additional way to launch:
Long-pressing Search Button (not work on Defy & device without search button)
• 0.5s faster than v1.5
• Screenshots captured in Android 2.3 Gingerbread
