Description

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.

Sick of my phone switching to landscape when I don't want it to. This is the perfect fix.

This app is so useful! When you need to quickly change the rotating behavior, just long press Search button or tap the shortcut. Donate!

Excellent app, but every once in a while I experience rotation without switching settings. Still, highly recommended.

Now with the search button being used as a means to switch on and off this is an essential app. Much love.
