Orientation control is the first TRUE orientation locking app that can lock the orientation in LANDSCAPE or PORTRAIT mode.

NO rooting required!

Orientation Control serves two main purposes:
1. As an orientation lock
2. As an easy to access orientation switch shortcut. No more going through the long process of opening Settings > Display to toggle auto rotate! Even more, gain the ability to force the orientation to portrait or landscape - a feature not natively supported by Android.

Orientation Control can lock the orientation to SIX modes:
1. Landscape
2. Reversed Landscape (Android 2.3.1 and above only)
3. Portrait (Same as disabling auto rotate in phone's settings)
4. Forced Portrait (Always in portrait regardless of app!)
5. Reversed Portrait (Android 2.3.1 and above only)
6. Auto Rotate

Features:
# Lock orientation with an app shortcut, notification or long-press search
# Cycle or selector switch mode
# Includes Tasker / Locale plug-in

** IMPORTANT NOTE **
Because of the way Orientation Control forces the Orientation in Landscape/Forced Portrait modes, certain applications that do not support that orientation might not display properly (such as full-screen games which are only in landscape being forced to portrait). Simply switch the orientation to Portrait or Auto Rotate mode when this happens.

    Exactly what I've been looking for. You can switch and lock orientations via a key press. Well worth the small price.

    Not perfect, but works fine with my newly updated Sony Xperia Tablet Z Android 4.2.2.

    Have a few apps on my tablet that normally work in portrait mode this app works perfect to use those apps in landscape, great app well worth the money.

    OK, that't not saying much ;) but I had at least three apps that were driving me nuts by displaying only in portrait when I prefer working in landscape. All are now behaving themselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    The only rotation app that actually does anything! Saved my sanity, thanks.

    Very nice. If you need your Droid desktop in landscape, it is perfect. It will not auto rotate the desktop but still works.

    Reverse Landscape and Landscape are the same orientation on my Nexus 7 now which means the app is useless currently with my in car install.
