Rotation toggler is essentially an auto-rotate screen toggler application that allows you to enable or disable android's auto-rotate feature. This is useful especially when you don't want the screen to change its orientation when say..you're reading an ebook or browsing a site and don't want your browser to change its orientation. Just long press on the search button and select "rotation toggler" or launch the application in your app drawer and toggle the auto-rotation on or off. It is just that simple! Don't forget to try my other free apps. Ad-supported (requires and uses internet connection ONLY if you launch the app via app drawer).

I created this app out of a request from my friend who wants an app to easily toggle the auto-rotation in his nexus one. Thought I'd share this app with the rest of the world, i'm sure someone will find it useful. Enjoy

You can download Rotation Toggler along with my other android apps here:

You know there's already a free widget in the market that does this. And it doesn't have ads.

It's called "Autorotate OnOff" by Curvefish.

Mine is not a widget, its a replacement when u long press on the search button. so its an alternative. For instance you're in adobe reader, you just long press, select the rotation toggler and you're done. With a widget, you'd have to press the home button, toggle the widget.

I wonder whether you could do that it woulden't rotate the home screen, bot like the browser (ect.) would? And so I don't have to switch manual every time.

Long press Home: Task Switcher
Long press Menu: Show keyboard
Long press Back: Close App/Show History
Long press Search: Voice Search

Most buttons already have a long press function

Actually if i'm not mistaken the stock home screen for most phones won't rotate, at least my n1 doesn't unless you're using a custom home screen like adw or launcher pro. Also this is not possible to disable just one part of the system such as the home screen or the browser. Its either off entirely for all or none at all.

kkssgg > Can't be done for other buttons, apps are not allowed to use other buttons for long pressing as it interfere's with its existing functions (home screen long press - switch apps, menu long press - keyboard, back button long press - well nothing but so far its not possible to long press a back button).
