The one and only rotation control app that can REALLY LOCK your screen in ANY orientation and also FORCE the automatic orientation to override app specific settings.
This 7-day trial version allows you to fully evaluate the app. Afterwards you can obtain a license via Google Play.
This app uses Accessibility services. These services are used to determine the current foreground application via the TYPE_WINDOW_STATE_CHANGED event to allow per-app orientation settings. This allows users with disabilities to keep the screen in the preferred orientation.
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”. It also allows using the launchers many devices in landscape mode. Some launchers will have the bottom row of icons cut off or other display issues, this is not something I can fix unfortunately. For a device like NVIDIA SHIELD it allows you to use most apps in landscape even if they normally do not work in landscape.
