Rotation Manager 2nd Generation






ABOUT
Rotation manager is a tool that lets you choose which application you want to rotate or which one you don't want to rotate. It is a really simple app designed for the least possible power and RAM consumption.

FEATURES
- Force the orientation of each app to your liking.
- Rotate your device freely, without worrying if your apps will change orientation.
- Orientation lock
- Forced Auto option
- Forced inverse portrait/landscape
- App-specific orientation
- Option for permanent notification, called "Permanent Notification mode"
*Premium Version:
- Automatic Brightness adjustment
- Automatic Screen timeout
- Automatic Media volume level

HOW TO USE
The main button on top of the screen is the global orientation for all the apps. It is a 5-state button and gives you all the orientation possibilities. Then you can select from the list for every app your desired orientation. Your selection will override the default global orientation. If you want only two apps to rotate and all the others to stay at their default, just disable global orientation and then select both Portrait and Landscape for the specific app in the list. After you have selected your desired apps, just click on play and your settings will be in effect.
Βy enabling "Permanent Notification mode" from "Preferences" an invisible permanent notification starts which ensures that the service will not be killed by the OS. Enable it if you have low RAM problems and the orientation service stops.
Also, if you want to enable inverse rotation, just select the -1 button on top left of the screen. Then, whenever forced landscape or forced portrait is enabled, it will be in inverse.

You have the option to enable it, so the app runs on boot each time.

Any help is appreciated!!

Nice start. I think the interface layout is a bit confusing, but it works.

Feature request: Per app ability to force different rotation locks, e.g. one app force portrait, another force landscape. Obviously this would necessitate a UI rethink.
