Orientation Control released!

Orientation control is the first TRUE orientation locking app that can lock the orientation in LANDSCAPE or PORTRAIT mode.
NO rooting required!

Orientation Control serves two main purposes:
1. As an orientation lock
2. As an easy to access orientation switch shortcut. No more going through the long process of opening Settings > Display to change your orientation!

Orientation Control can lock the orientation to FOUR modes:
1. Landscape
2. Portrait (Same as disabling auto rotate in phone's settings)
3. Forced Portrait (Always in portrait regardless of app!)
4. Auto Rotate

How to use:
When Orientation Control is installed, there will be two application shortcuts available in the application list:

- Orientation Control
Launch this to configure switch modes, orientation behavior and switch shortcuts.

- Orientation Switch
This is the application shortcut that can be run from anywhere to switch orientation easily. You can run this by:
(a) Selecting it from the application list
(b) Creating an application shortcut on home screen
(c) Creating a quick launch keyboard shortcut(if available) in the phone's settings. (settings > Application > Quick Launch)
(d) Long-pressing the Search Button (Can be enabled or disabled)
(e) From the notification status bar shortcut (Can be enabled or disabled)
(f) Any third party-apps that can launch an application

Two different modes:
An orientation selector will be shown when Orientation Switch is run

Cycle through the different orientation modes when Orientation Switch is run

Because of the way Orientation Control forces the Orientation in Landscape/Forced Portrait modes, certain applications that do not support that orientation might not display properly (such as full-screen games which are only in landscape being forced to portrait). Simply switch the orientation to Portrait or Auto Rotate mode when this happens.
 Currently listed for $0.99 on the Android Market.
