AutoRotate Switch

AutoRotate Switch


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 app is recommended by Lifehacker

User reviews of AutoRotate Switch
the best app of its kind

画面の回転を検索ボタンの長押しでコントロール。これは便利!

Doesn't work on Intercept. It does turn settings/auto-rotate on and off, but screen won't rotate (as it did before without this app). Do I need to reboot each time to activate? If so, dislike. (long press search is assigned to Google voice, could that be a conflict?) Edit: Discovered it doesn't toggle the orientation in Zeam.

now it has the option to toggle rotate within an app, this has become essential. No need to exit before toggling! Time to buy!
