Works with Car Dock / Desk Dock
Removing from a dock will restore the previous settings
(Not a locale plug-in)
**** NOTE ****
Motorola released a software update to the Droid Razr in Feb 2012 that partially breaks Razr Dock. If you do not have a physical dock (either car or desktop), you should not have any trouble. If you dock you phone, undock it, and try to run Razr Dock... it will fail. If you use your dock, you will need to reboot your phone to make Razr Dock work again.

UNINSTALL NOTE: This app will be a 'Device Administrator' if you activate the 'Lock screen on undock' feature. You must deactivate the feature, or remove the app from your phone's device administrator before you can uninstall. Go to your phone's settings, Location & Security, Device Administrator, disable Car Dock Home v3, then uninstall as usual.
Add your favorite apps, shortcuts and widgets to as many as 7 screens, for easy access in the car. Defaults to a screen of 2x3 cells for large easy touch buttons.

* icon grid anywhere from 1x1 to 4x4
* full screen or not
* paging buttons, or not
* smooth scrolling like your home app.
* Icons scaling options.
* set timeout/inactivity page independent of start page. ( This is why people think it changes pages on it's own... cause it does... but you can control it. )
* OR pick a widget that will be displayed as a screen saver.

* Navigation link that attempts to resume navigation if maps app is running ( not 100% reliable, a work in progress )

Your Input is Welcome!
Note: home key while in Car Dock app only takes you to start page if Car Dock app is set as default car home and you are in car mode. Car Dock does not automatically put the phone in car mode... Try google's 'Car Home' icon to launch car mode on froyo, or my 'Car Dock Control' for eclair/froyo/gingerbread...
If you don't like my dialer and contacts, you can use your own... Many complain that the stock Android dialer/contacts app doesn't support landscape, but I've found that it does, but on many phones you have to enable auto rotation in the dialer app preferences.
Override Home button when docked.

Just launch the app once after installing to set it up and then never worry about it again. When you put the device in a dock the rotation is forced to the correct orientation for your dock and when you take it back out it reverts to your previous settings. No fuss, no hassle.
I've tested this on my Nexus 7 in the official Nexus 7 dock and I've also had reports it works with the Galaxy Nexus as well. Note that some third party docks or wireless chargers aren't recognised by Android as docks, but you can still use the app with them by enabling forced rotation when charging from the settings menu. Please get in touch to let me know if you have problems with your device or dock.
Credits: The app was written and designed by me. One of the screenshots shows Spotify, which I am in no way responsible for; it just demonstrates my app applying forced rotation from portrait to landscape. The launcher icon is courtesy of Android Asset Studio.
This app does NOTHING else. No background processes, no app icons.
There is *no* configuration. If you don't want it to be active, you have to uninstall it. Sorry.
** NOTICE **
This application works for most users, but not everyone. If the app doesn't seem to do the job for you, we recommend seeking out a similar app from the Market. We built it to be as lightweight as possible but that does not provide full-functionality to some devices. We do not intend to release an updated version in the near future.
Install this application only if you
a) If you are using dock
b) And really do not want to use default dock application.
We are welcome to your comments and suggestions.
All your short cuts one touch away.
Desk Dock Pro.
- Beautiful UI
- Everything one touch away
- High Quality Graphics
more updates to come
- Play Store
Start from the Launcher after installation to be workable.
This application opens the keyboard choose dialog each time you connect/disconnect your device to/from dock.
Use it to easily switch to your favorite on-screen keyboard when undocking and switch back to hardware keyboard when docking.
Also you can add a shortcut to the keyboard choosing dialog to your home screen or to the notification area.
Unfortunately this application cannot silently switch the keyboard for you. It's the Android security restriction which can be avoided only with root access. But this application doesn't require root.
This currently only works for docks that have a sensor in them/cause the phone to go into a desk or car mode when docked. This will be changed in a future release to also work when just charging.
You can toggle Bright Dock on/off in the status bar while in a dock.
This currently does *NOT* change screen brightness.
For those with probs on the N1 Car Dock could you email us if the icon shows up?
When you connect a charger or USB cable Dock Show activates automatically and prevents your device from going into sleep mode. You can still turn the screen on or off as usual by pressing the power button. When the external power source is removed Dock Show then de-activates automatically
Dock Show was designed to improve the experience for the ReaderDock F-Station, a recharging dock with amplified speakers specifically designed for the Kindle Fire, but it will work for most Android devices and while connected to any power source.
The days of having to repeatedly turn on your screen while listening to music or audio books is over! We hope you enjoy Dock Show.
