Prevent Your Screen From Switching to Landscape with Rotation Toggle
Minor, yet useful widget for Android devices. This small app for Android created by XDA member mlbl allows you to turn the auto rotate screen feature on or off. This is a rather useful shortcut particularly if your device has a very sensitive accelerometer and rotates the screen at the slightest tilt.
Take a look at it and if you have any feedback or suggestions, make sure that you let the dev know.
Rotation toggler is essentially an auto-rotate screen toggler application that allows you to enable or disable android’s auto-rotate feature. This is useful especially when you don’t want the screen to change its orientation when say..you’re reading an ebook or browsing a site and don’t want your browser to change its orientation. Just long press on the search button and select “rotation toggler” or launch the application in your app drawer and toggle the auto-rotation on or off. It is just that simple! Don’t forget to try my other free apps. Ad-supported (requires and uses internet connection ONLY if you launch the app via app drawer).
You can find more information in the widget thread.
