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.

    Nexus 7 2013. I had big problems with auto rotate in any direction disabled by badly written apps, (and professional ones too). I have to reboot to restore it. Nexus 7 has auto rotate button anyway but this app seems to repair the bug bad apps leave behind. Well nice one!

    It works. Requires permissions that I wouldn't expect.
