Apps use current orientation.

Annoyed apps changing current screen orientation? Try this module!


If you are using in landscape, some apps force orientation to portrait. So you have to rotate you device to use this app which is a bad user experience. With this module these apps don't change anymore the screen orientation and you could use it in current orientation. An example of such an app is System app remover

There are 2 apps with same effect, but
HaveOwnOrientation (free): This app has no user interface. Enable it in Xposed - reboot - done.
OwnOrientation (donate): User interface for simple configuring, logging etc

IMPORTANT
Xposed needs root access for installation

Why these apps? To lazy to rotate the device!

@faizan.rupani: Maybe the app checks the current location and sets it again if it is not as desired. Can you post a link to the app?
@flexxoo: User interface is not planned so far. If you want to have an app in other orientation, just turn device - if automatic orientation is enabled.

Hello, I tried the module and it works, but when I rotate the screen potrait mode on apps that are supposed to be used in landscape mode only the screen just goes black. It would be wonderful to be able to fine tune the module for each indivudual app like "Ultimate Rotation Control" does

Hi! Tried the module. This modules solves my problem with the game called:

School Idol Festival both, English and Japanese Versions.

but when I launch the app while in portrait, then i rotated to landscape, it scales with the same size as in portrait having only 1/4 on the screen :)
what i mean is that when i launch the app, it retains it's size and doesnt rescale with the current orientation.
:)

just an opinion maybe you could also add a blacklist or sort . :) just an opinion.
Good Job anyways :D

Okay okay, rudimentary block list added, no time atm for full gui. Just place package names in the file of apps which should not be blocked.
If you dont know the package name
- open Play Store in webbrowser, the ?id= part of the ur is the app
- or enable debug in the module, it shows all package names in xposed log
- or search in the created blockfile the app, but there are no new installed apps added

If Xposed is system or not should not matter - but could cause other problems, dont know excatly.
If you open the module it "opens" a text file with you default app. Maybe you have set one earlier as default which does nothing. This assignement could be reset in Andorid app drawer "reset defaults", or so.
You could also open the file manually: /data/data/de.defim.apk.haveownorientation/files/HaveOwnOrientation.txt

Your Xposed is working at all? Which Android version does you have?
Does the module load? Could be see in the xposd log
You could enable the "debug" in the config file and have more messages in the xposed log after reboot
