Ultimate Rotation Control

The one and only rotation control app for android that can REALLY LOCK your screen in ANY orientation and also FORCE the automatic orientation to override app specific settings. The "Forced Auto" mode for example is very handy on tablets where some apps force portrait mode while you are holding the screen "upside down".

Locking of the screen comes in handy when the screen rotates while you do not want it to; without this app you would have to dig deep into the settings to switch of the automatic rotation.


- True orientation lock

- Forced automatic rotation

- Two widgets and a status bar notification with shortcut buttons for easily changing your rotation preference

- Optimized for Android 1.6 (Donut) all the way to Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
