AutoRotation Control

AutoRotation Control


Stop the display auto-rotating to the right or left side , without affecting automatic rotation (landscape mode) to the other side.

Since Android 2.2 (Froyo) the display is enabled to autorotate in both directions without any option to disable the autorotation to the right or the left side. It for right-handed persons does not make sense to keep the rotation to the right side active. The opposite is true for left-handed persons.

The switching off of the autorotation to one side, which is controlled automatically by this app, on the other hand allows usage or the phone when lying in bed on the autorotation-disabled side without having the screen turning.

Recent changes:
v1.2:
added blocking of autorotation to the left side
added blocking all rotation
v1.1:
restores actual settings if rebooted
v1.0:
blocking of autorotation to the right side

Needs more specific rotation disable control It would be great if you could also have an option to disable the upside down rotation (180 degrees I think they call it). Maybe an option that lets you choose which rotations to disable as a multiple checkboxes like cyanogenmod supports? That would be great!

Unique and Useful I've tried 4 or 5 different rotation control apps and this is by far my favorite. Allows me to maintain landscape mode on camera without losing the ability to browse the internet in portrait while lying down. Also, thanks for not having a ton of frightening permissions! One thing: is it possible to restrict rotation preferences to individual apps? There are only 2 or 3 that I would ever want to rotate and it's slightly annoying to change the universal setting.
