- fix for the music issue
- a sensitivity adjustment bar
- ability to define your own default exceptions (for personal use or for ROM's)
- user can choose to add a toggle link added to the programs menu. You can then link this to hardware buttons via other programs.
- & many other fixes that were brought up during the past few months.


Download the latest version of changeScreen (v2.78) here!

I will update the screenshots when I get the change (hopfully soon)...

The issue about crashing gyrator, changescreen, flip-it and whatever sensor app after making a call with topaz dialer it's because this enabled option by default.

HKLM\Software\HTC\PHONE\FaceDownMuteRing
change to 0

My thanks to jpl69 for that post!

NOTE: fix for full screen apps showing title bar after rotation!
Read the post with the fix here
Thanks to Claus72 for the research and the post!

Gyrator is a great app... with a load of functions but I found that I didn't really use any of them except the screen tilt/Gsensor function.

That said one of the problems I had with Gyrator is that it always stayed in my open apps which is not THAT big a deal, but would just annoy the crap out of my OCD brain!

Anyway I decided to make a different version for myself and anyone else who JUST wants the Screen tilt function.

This appliaction will:
- allow you to stop and start the screen switch as you please
- start up with your device if desired
- allow exceptions (Opera is an exception by default because it already uses the Gsensor)
* I recommend if you use Tomtom to add that in a well (to avoid the screen switching when you hit a bump!)
- NOT show up in the running programs list! (Most important thing to me!)
- You also do NOT need to install .NETCF 3.5 to use this. It should run fine on 2.0!

Version 2.5
Download changeScreen version v2.5 here!

Version 2.1 is still available if 2.5 doesn't work for some reason
Download changeScreen version v2.1 (2) here!

The BETA is still available if 2.1 doesn't work for some reason
Download changeScreen.cab v2.1 BETA here!

Version 1.54 is still available for those of you who like the older version better!
Download changeScreen.cab v1.54 here

ok I really like this app. I have it setup with rotate only apps in the exceptions list. (word, excel, outlook, sms, notes, internet explorer, skyfire, rescoe explorer 2007, splash id)
the phone app on incoming call works perfectly this way. face down mute still works. If I am in landscape in outlook and a call comes in the incoming call screen will pop up in portrait. if I face down the phone the phone mutes. (gyrator would not do this and has issues with the incoming call screen on my NA diamond)
the rotate is also very speedy. definitely usable. much faster than the stock opera rotation for sure. although this app still does not affect the opera function because I believe it ignores it as a default. (album, and teeter ignored as default as well I believe)
I will run it for a few days and see how the battery drain is. how is this on the raphael in terms of battery drain?
(my diamond has netCF3.5 installed, so I did not test the use under netCF 2)

***bug 1- bug on my diamond is when using advance setting with "rotate only apps in exception" list manila rotates after hitting volume up down side key while the "system volume" window is in focus under manila.

Whoa... good catch! This issue has been fixed. Redownload version 1.52 from the 1st thread! Thanks!

btw - I havent noticed any "out of the ordinary" battery drain while developing. Nobody in the Raphael forums has mentioned anything either...

Also, if you remove opera from the list it should try to rotate opera as well. Same thing with teeter and album...

ive used 1.51 all day. it works very well. ill try 1.52 with the fix on system volume. thanks.

*one bug that your app shares with gyrator2 is that if your app is run under the standard config (with opera, teeter, album listed as exceptions) the "incoming phone call" focus window will not mute the ring on face down. the work around for me is to run your app with your advanced config of apps listed for rotation.

but great app. it seems very stable and fast on the rotations.

it does not bother me other than my own ocd issues...
I just set your app under advanced settings and list my apps I want to rotate.
it works perfectly for me!

*the text for your download link is still listed as 1.51 on top thread btw.
