Question Prevent screen rotation on app-by-app basis

Is there a way to disable the automatic screen rotation for specific applications? I thought I'd seen a settings app that did this, but haven't been able to find it on xda or anywhere else. Are there per-application settings that control rotation or is it just the global setting that's available? I've seen mention of doing this by editing an app's manifest.xml file, but am not sure if this can be done if all I have is the apk or not...

Default One solution...

I recently discovered the Xposed Framework and am using the App Settings module within it to control a variety of per-app settings, including orientation.
