"It’s happened to all of us. You’re lying in bed and have screen auto-rotation on, and as soon as you open an up on your home screen, the screen turns sideways. Yes, we know we can turn off the auto-rotation in the settings, or change the position of the phone until the text is upright once more, but we’re a lazy people, in a lazy generation aided by technology, and if there’s an app for something, then problem fixed."

Samantha -Read the full review

'OrientationLocker' enables you to toggle the Auto-rotate mechanism EASILY.
Each time you change the screen orientation without any need of pulling down the status bar, going to settings or using external application.
Each time you rotate your phone, the lock symbol will appear and by a single click you will be able to choose whether you want your screen to rotate or not !


DONATION version offers the following features :
  • Setting the symbol opacity.
  • the symbol offset.
  • More options for symbol timeout.
  • Setting notification icon as transparent.
Please try the free version to make sure everything is as expected.

Note!
This app will NOT lock your screen permanently in any orientation, it uses the Android auto-rotate mechanism in order to control the screen orientation !

The app requests several permissions - it's all for making it more usable ,
I.E. it will ask for Read Phone status and identity for not interrupting while in call / ring.

Great app! Just one remark: I don't like the intrusive icon. Will future updates include a simple, minimal white-only lock icon to fit with every other icon? It's a small thing but nonetheless it could - personally spoken - be that bit better
