  1. I just found this app, it's great! Love it!

    PLEASE consider adding Tasker support to directly trigger a particular rotation when launching a particular app, there are lots of Tasker users who want this functionality, just check the forums.

  2. Hello renton and thanks for your suggestion. Just wanted to let you know that what you have requested is currently being worked on and will be implemented in the next version in the form of a built in locale plugin that will also work with tasker. Please do not hesotate to send me an e-mail should you want to speak with me directly

  3. Hi I bought this app and it is great but is there anyway you could make it force the softkeyboard to work on landscape mode. My sidekick 4g doesnt support this

  4. Hello Nick,
    Thanks for buying my app.

    Unfortunately, the Sidekick 4g is one of the few android phones that does not have a landscape soft keyboard built into the phone. It seems that the manufacturer assumes that the hardware keyboard is sufficient.

    Because it does not exist in the first place, there is no way my app can make it show up. I'm sorry but there is nothing I can do =(

    Perhaps an update in the phone's OS by the manufacturer in the future will make it possible.

    Please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail at coinskasad AT gmail DOT com if you would like further clarification into this matter.
