About this app

This is a tool app that can change the orientation and rotation of the screen regardless of the attributes of the displayed application.
The screen can be fixed in a specific orientation or, conversely, rotated according to the sensor.
You can change the screen orientation from the notification area. It is also possible to associate a specific application with the screen orientation and switch settings when the application starts.
Not all settings are available because some screen orientations are not supported by some devices.

Because this app forcibly changes the display of the running application, it can become inoperable or, in the worst case, cause a crash.
Please use at your own risk.
Even if a problem occurs, please refrain from making inquiries to the developer of the application as it will be a nuisance.

How this app works

This application displays the UI on a layer above other general applications.
It's transparent, no size and untouchable, so it's invisible to the user, but by changing the screen orientation requirements of this UI, it has a higher priority than apps that are normally visible to the user. The OS recognizes it as a high instruction.

In addition, this application will remain resident in the background to display the UI even after it is closed.
Therefore, the UI that resides in the notification bar is displayed. This is because Android rules need to display something in the notification bar in order to stay in the background.

Due to this mechanism, there are some restrictions.
- Although it can change the display of the notification bar, it cannot hide. I often request that you want to turn off the display, but please note that this is impossible due to the system.
- The system may recognize that it is the cause of battery consumption. In that case, this application may be terminated. If the app quits frequently, you may be able to avoid it by setting power saving, so please check the settings of your device.
- Since it has a UI above other apps, it may be recognized as an app that induces unauthorized operations. Therefore, this application may be detected and a warning may be displayed or operation may be prohibited. This app is not such an app, but please note that it will be an unavoidable problem as long as it uses the same mechanism as the fraudulent app.
- If you use this app together with other apps that display overlays, it may cause functional conflicts and may not function properly.

A life saver. I got a dead spot on my screen that blocks some very important buttons on apps, but using this lets me avoid the dead spot. Being able to stay in portrait mode while lying on my side is very nice too. My one suggestion would be that once the sensor settings are stable, I'd like to see the addition of one that allows other apps to set portrait or landscape, but ensures that the sensor can be used to flip it.

This app is perfect! It allows me to click a convenient button in the notification bar without relying on Gyro Sensor to rotate, and it can override other apps' defaults, so they dont rotate unexpectedly. The design is easy to read and no intrusive ads or designs, and runs in the background, with the notification bar, and many other things, being a setting. Another way to take some control of your android that Samsung doesnt give you!
