Fantastic! Enables use of Notification bar to make change of screen orientation SO easy! Android's Auto-rotate option isn't always what I want (e.g. when lying on side, yet want screen in Portrait mode). No longer do I have to: 1) exit an app 2) go into android Settings 3) scroll to Display settings 4) scroll to Screen orientation setting 5) force screen orientation to what I want 6) exit Settings 7) relaunch original app. And laboriously go thru 1) to 7) again to reinstate Auto- rotate for normal use. Thank you!
Best orientation app so far My phone's orientation sensor stopped working. This is the best orientation control app I have tried (4 or 5 of them). I could change orientation in 3 steps. 1. Slide down notification 2. Select orientation. 3. Collapse notification. It would be much better if the notification can automatically collapse after step 2. Or this can be made configurable. I would give this app 5 stars with this suggested feature..
Finally lets me use my phone in landscape I have a Nexus 6P, and I really wanted it to feel more like a tablet by being able to rotate the home screen. I've used other apps that work, but make you manually change the orientation. This one fixes that. The Guard mode plus the auto rotate allow me to use my phone normal, sideways, even upside down! My only complaint is that I wish there wasn't a persistent notification in my tray. I wish I could just enable it in the app and leave it that way. But for now, this'll do! ☺
My prepay phone does not have rotation sensors and this app was recommended by phone mfg. It worked! I don't mind that it is manually controlled. Yeah, I would recommend it to people with cheap phones and tablets with screens that don't rotate.. It gets the job done and it's easy to use.
Exactly what I needed After dropping my phone, my camera only worked when in landscape and blacked out if it was rotated, but, I could use it in portrait if I fixed the phone's orientation to landscape (frustrating). I tried a couple of orientation apps, but the first didn't have a notification button and the second meant using its notification button to open the app - this third app is absolutely perfect with its fully operational notification menu, meaning I can apply any orientation in as little as two flicks. Thank you!
Great little app It does exactly what I need it to do. It locks my screen into reversed portrait mode (something missing from lollipop) and keeps it there. The only thing missing is the option to not display set settings in the notification bar. If it had that, it would be perfect.
