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.

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 of for example the HTC (One X/One S) Sense 4, Samsung Galaxy S3 Touchwiz and Google Nexus 7 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 (some versions of Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 2, HTC One). For a device like NVIDIA SHIELD it allows you to use most apps in landscape even if they normally do not work in landscape (like Spotify).
Features: - True orientation lock - Forced automatic rotation - Per application settings - Two widgets and a status bar notification with shortcut buttons for easily changing your rotation preference - Ability to create shortcuts to specific modes - Can act as Tasker / Locale plugin to automate your screen orientation setting
Supported modes: - Auto: normal automatic mode, not overriding app preferences - Forced Auto: automatic mode, but overriding other app preferences! - 3/4 Forced: automatic mode overriding other app preferences (only portrait, landscape and reverse landscape, NOT reverse portrait; this only works on phones, not on tablets) - Lock: truly locks the screen in the current orientation - Portrait: truly lock the screen in portrait - Landscape: truly lock the screen in landscape - Reverse Portrait: truly lock the screen in reverse portrait - Reverse Landscape: truly lock the screen in reverse landscape - Auto Portrait: automatically select between portrait and reverse portrait - Auto Landscape: automatically select between landscape and reverse landscape - Manual: normal manual mode, not overriding app preferences
Remarks: - This is a 7-day trial version. If you want to continue using this app after this period you need to buy “Rotation Control (License)” from the Android Market. - This app does NOT require root access. - Certain applications might not display properly when forced to work on portrait/landscape. You can set a per application preference to normal auto or manual mode to workaround these issues. - Auto and Reverse Portrait and Landscape supported from Android version 2.3 (Gingerbread) - Status bar notification direct shortcuts supported from Android version 3.0 (Honeycomb)
