*minds out of the gutter*

I frequently use my phone in bed while lying down sideways (years of using my laptop in bed have made this so). This means that Gyrator gets completely screwed up because my head is sideways, giving no hope for the screen to be oriented the same way as my eyes. I usually have to move around a lot to get it to line up, or give up and sit up.

Is there a way to switch Gyrator, or your phone, to know that sideways is up for a temporary period of time? Does anyone else deal with this problem? Is this the most meaningless problem you've ever heard of? Is all this way too much information about my bed habits?

+1 Agreed

I uninstalled gyrator last night whilst in bed as it was annoying me so much.

I honestly thought I was the only one with this problem. :P

I ended up just using PIE for anything I wanted to read (which worked out since I mostly read short stories on websites)

I have not come across anything that might do what you're asking, and although I wasn't exactly looking for it I think it would have caught my eye.

If I find anything I'll let you know. Power to the bed-gyrators! (?)

Agreed. Uninstalled Gyrator for the same reason as yours.

Get it and add exceptions to it for apps you use in bed :P

I think it might be easier to just crash Gyrator in bed. There are no apps I use exclusively why lying down.

Try playing Teeter while lying down sideways. It's a mess!

+1 for Change Screen. I've been using it for 2 days and not 1 problem and very easy to customize.

Hahah, I totally have this same problem. But then, I don't think it bothers me enough to actually do anything about it. And it would annoy me more to have a switch an app on and off to change the behaviour.
