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:
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
** IMPORTANT NOTE **
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.
