There is an app called Rotation Manager that will let you allow all apps to rotate.
You can change what each app does when rotated, or just all of them, up to you
I used this one until recently. Stopped using it since my phone added face detection based auto rotate so I don’t need the app anymore.
I use this app for per-app rotation control. I only have auto rotate on for photos and YouTube, and the quick toggle for rotation still works like normal for everything else.
For years now, it's been mind boggling to me that this hasn't been addressed yet. I always default to no auto-rotation and use the rotation orientation manager app to set rules for some apps to be able to auto rotate. It's a relatively solid solution for me.
Fingers crossed that Google can figure something out, especially now with the use soli perhaps.
Yeah it's been a bug with the Android app for ages unfortunately but there are a couple workarounds.
Firstly once you click the "Tap when arrived" button, the notes box appears in full and isn't cut off after 10 lines, so you can read the full instructions at that point.
The other workaround is a little more annoying, but it works - temporarily force the app into landscape orientation. The text boxes only show 10 lines of text, so if you rotate the app into landscape, each line can hold twice as much text so you can almost always see all the instructions that were cut off in portrait mode. I use this app which has a "force landscape" option.
I was also annoyed I couldn't rotate and watch videos in portrait. I searched and found a few apps let let you force rotate. I decided on this one for now. I only enable it when I am going to watch Netflix or Plex at work.
If you want a simple solution that almost fits your needs. Can force landscape while using a selected application.
- Rotation - Orientation Manager – Android Apps on Google Play - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Rotation - Orientation Manager was featured in the Arena on episode 265.
I've been using Rotation Orientation Manager for a couple of years to keep my tablet in reverse landscape mode and to occasionally put my phone in reverse portrait while driving. I don't know if it's the best, but it's worked just fine for me.
Okay! I remember now! (If you saw my previous comment, I figured it back out thanks to another user in a different thread)
ETC > Save File Sharing
It specifically has an option for getting a code that you use on the other OS, and then once you've loaded your game, it syncs automatically. ;P (You'll just have to get through the Intro on NOX before you can enter the code I think)
Also, this thread will help you get NOX up and running:
One of the comments even suggests an App to play in Landscape (Though I use this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation)
On an android podcast (I think all about android) someone mentioned rotation orientation manager. In their rundown of the features they mentioned the features you need. I haven't tried it out, but here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
I don't know how the Mate 30 does things, but I've been using Rotation for a long time. The free version is sufficient for most everything. I bought the outside version though.
I use pull-slide up/down for volume constantly.
At this point I wouldn't be able to use a phone without it. It's just too good.
Also, with the help of Orientation Manager, slide down the side and hold for a second = manually rotate screen. (I have auto-rotate off).
Planning to buy pad 5. Is it great for multi tasking?
>Firefox has certain extensions allowed on Android. The optimized apps is more tricky. I have a xiaomi pad 5 and Firefox on desktop mode is amazing. I'd also recommend rotation
That will force every app on landscape. It's a must for any tablet Android
Firefox has certain extensions allowed on Android. The optimized apps is more tricky. I have a xiaomi pad 5 and Firefox on desktop mode is amazing. I'd also recommend rotation
Download this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Set it up and select 'Forced autorotate'. This will override Samsung's autorotate logic and restore the sane autorotate that is available on every other Android device.
I've recommended this several times before andI really can't recommend it enough. The app, Rotation | Orientation Manager, from the Play Store, is just awesome.
Highly customizable, Tasker integration, widgets, allows for upside down (180°) orientation, and you can create countless profiles and Quick Toggle shortcuts so that your preferred rotation profile or orientation is just a tap or two away. You can easily set it up to force certain apps to always rotate, never rotate, run in forced portrait/landscape orientation, etc.
It can be configured to respect defined conditions, as well. For example, I have it setup so that the lock screen is always in portrait mode, but automatically rotates between portrait modes (0° and 180°) depending on how I'm holding the phone (as in, it rotates, but never to landscape orientation). And my phone's display, including the in-call screen, will be forced to auto rotate to landscape mode during a phone call, but ONLY if I'm driving (which I prefer, because I use a mount in my Jeep with my Fold3 unfolded and in landscape orientation).
Also, the developer is extremely responsive and helpful, should you need any assistance in setting up configurations.
Here's the link, for anyone interested: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
All called Rotation. You can hard lock to landscape and even customize per app. And it can be toggled off from the quick panel.
This is the one I use. I have a Walmart Onn tablet and after the first reboot, it stopped rotating 4 ways, only 3. :/ This app is almost flawless.
I was having the same problem as you. Luckily I found an app on the play store that can achieve this it's called Rotation | Orientation Manager
I used to use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation on my Lenovo Yoga Book to force full-screen portrait apps into landscape. Worked pretty well.
Same here. Was this done on purpose? I believed it was a bug in my ROM. Do you have a link to the pr/issue where this was discussed?
I too searched for a setting and didn't find it but working around it using Rotation - Orientation Manager.
I have been using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation&hl=en_US for a very long time. Has a lot of functions for free and you can set per app rule.
I hated that I couldn't video chat in landscape mode on WhatsApp and I saw someone suggested this app. It's changed my life. It will rotate any app. I use it for Forest because my stand holds it landscape. Hope it helps.
use this app
you can make the game in landscape mode I hope this work
You may try an app like this + one hand operation
To make use of the bottom half of the screen.
I have not personally used such app, but you can find some workaround for time being :)
Hi, I don't know if this works on ChromeOS but I use this app on my Tab S3 this override and really force every apps to landscape.
Here the link : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
If you have Android 9 or later, if you disable auto rotation, then turn your phone in landscape a little button should appear around the navigation area, tap that once and now your phone is locked in landscape. To go to portrait again turn the phone to portrait and the button should pop up again. For me is like this https://imgur.com/a/RTZOe4U
If you don't have this I don't this app that can control the rotation per app
why is 360° rotation disabled in every skin? do they think users will hold their phones to their ears upside-down and then file a complaint because the ear-piece isn't next to the ear?
sometimes even landscape only works in 1 orientation, and build.prop edits are ignored so you have to use an app
beauty of android is you can install an app to allow 180 degree rotation (upside down). That way your screen is never upside down.
I rec Rotation, super useful for custom behaviors and allows for some interesting use cases when you want the screen split to be in Portrait instead of Landscape.
For the record, the ONLY app for Android that does "Forced auto" correctly on a per-application basis is the below app. I spent a lot of time trying all of them. I'm finally able to have landscape mode on Netflix, Instagram, YouTube AND still have my Note 9 camera set to normal Android Pie rotation. This should save someone a lot of time in the future if they search for this on Reddit.
One I used to use was just called Rotation
EDIT - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
I use this app for rotation: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
It has per-app profiles so certain apps can be just portrait or 180° portrait, for example.
I'm going to have to check out that app, seems I can get two birds stoned at once with it, thanks!
I tried the Rotation-Orientation Manager app, but even though it is a very powerful app, in that it forces every app into landscape (even the home screen xD ), the default camera app still made portrait videos.
If you're on Android, I'd recommend Rotation - Orientation Manager. It allows you to set up rules to force portrait, landscape, or allow the sensor to control rotation for each app individually, so you could force YouTube into landscape mode and when you swap to something else it reverts to sensor control without you doing anything.
To follow up on u/vgergo's edit, it should be possible to rotate the entire UI if you sideload the correct app. The original post links to this obnoxious site with a list of 5 apps. So maybe if you used ADB to install one of the apps (here's the first) onto your watch to force a reversed orientation.
Heh, if you like the default Landscape view, I'd say you'll be fine with the Desktop version. ;P I myself am not a fan. I mean... there's a few things I like about it, but overall I think they didn't take enough advantage of the extended real estate. Like... they're mostly pretending it's still a Portrait game for everything but the cut scenes and the battle scenes, when they've now got more lateral space to work with.
I guess... had I not been playing in they hybrid landscape mode for like, ever, I'd probably not have minded 'as' much? And the way to try it out yourself is to download a forced orientation app (I'm using this one here.) and set the game to portrait, and then load up the app, force everything to run Landscape, and relaunch the app. The game will run in a Hybrid Landscape / Portrait mode that I find better uses the available space than the "Official" Landscape mode, barring a few small quirks.
nevermind I did a bit of research and found the app I was looking for: Rotation - Orientation Manager
It even supports creating Button Savior shortcuts to specific modes (including "toggle", and you can customize which modes to toggle between)! Note that it costs $0.99 after 7 days, but it fits my needs perfectly so worth it imo. I also found Ultimate Rotation Control is almost identical (including shortcuts for Button Savior), but the UI is slightly older and it costs $2.99, so no competition there.
thanks, I actually found one that's very similar to Ultimate Rotation Control but a slightly more modern UI, and a bit cheaper: Rotation - Orientation Manager
I've been using Rotation - Orientation Manager on NOX and LOVING it. ;P
Just load it up and set it to force Landscape "Before" Launching Mobius and you're good to go.
I had a better idea. There are apps that can force other apps to auto rotate. This should work on your home screen.
Try this one:
I use an app called Rotation, which allows me to choose how each app deals with rotation. Most of them are locked in portrait, but if an app needs landscape then I'll set it to landscape. Some, like youtube, get auto-rotate. My tablet is locked on reverse-landscape, because I'm left handed and the button placement at the bottom of the tablet (which becomes the left side in reverse landscape) makes it easier for me to hold in that orientation. Again, if something needs portrait mode, I just set that app to do so.
edit: I also use reverse-portrait for listening to music in the car, because the headphone jack is on the top of the phone and I prefer having the cable dangle from the bottom rather than sticking out of the top when it's in the cradle.
I'm still getting everything dialed in but see if this works:
Install Rotation - Orientation Manager
Let me know if that works at all. Cheers!
Rotation (by Pranav Pandey)
Can set separate rotation setting for the whole OS and individual apps. This includes forcing an orientation on Fixed orientation apps like the popular QR Code reader by ZXing Team. Another use I have is to leave selected apps in auto-rotate mode so Galleries, Browsers and Notepad apps can auto-rotate while the OS and other apps can remain fixed. I was actually surprised by the amount of thought put into a simple rotation app. The tutorial itself was about 10 pages. Many many options, Material Design, Dark Theme and all of the important features like individual app settings are Free. There are two paid features - Tasker Plugins and Backup/Restore.
Chrooma Keyboard (by GameLounge)
A proper color changing keyboard. Not like the sometimes-working Fleksy Chameleon theme but a proper color changing keyboard that changes color automatically based on the app you are currently using. Doesnt need root or Xposed. Sometimes you might prefer a different color or a more matching or contrasting color then the one the app automatically selects, in that case you can set custom colors for individual apps. Long-press the period key for the settings and color setting option for the app. To pick the color I use a "dropper" tool like Pipetter or Pixolor that gives the color code from a screenshot and then I feed that code into Chrooma Keyboard. A major issue is that there is NO free version or trial. Its still cheaper than the Fleksy color changing theme or the Xposed Module Flat Style Keyboard. Can swype or type, but no symbols by long pressing, has a numbers row option but it my too wide for most people.
Clock L (by Moblynx)
This is a replacement for the Default Clock app. It looks just like the default app and changes color throughout the day while offering more features like vibrating with timers. Cant believe the default Clock app doesnt have a vibrate with timers option while the Dev team has time to modify the already-fine colors to make it more "neutral". Another important aspect for me is that the timer and stopwatch in CLock L are not "cleared" if the phone reboots like in the stock app. A design element which might be good or bad for some people is that the colors of this app are the lighter colors that Google recently changed so people wanting to get those colors back can get this app. The free app has a banner at the bottom asking the user to upgrade to the paid app. This banner will not go away with adaway or minminguard.
Inputting Plus combined with Clip Stack (both by Catching Now)
Undo feature for Android along with multiple clipboard entries if you combine it with the app Clip Stack by the same developer. After deleting a paragraph in a notepad app by mistake, I was surprised that there was no undo feature in the OS itself, not just the notepad app. My search led me to Inputting Plus. It not only lets you undo the stuff you just typed but also if you are working on an already typed out or an old note. Say you open an old note which you haven't typed out right now and delete a paragraph, it can undo that as-well. Unfortunately, due to system limitations, inputting texts in WebView(such as Google Chrome) are not supported yet.
Material Design and Free (one feature is paid but I never had any need of using it - its a timeline of all the various text edits you have made all over the OS.)
Wallapaper Changer (by j4velin)
This app rarely gets mentioned though everyone mentions Muzei. Heres the kicker, this app also has a Muzei plugin so you can change wallpaper while you change wallpaper (Yo dawg). Wallpaper Changer is for the images stored on your phone only and not internet images. It can change them via Muzei, via its own live wallpaper or even without any live wallpaer in "Static" mode. Muzei doesn't let you set small intervals like 5 minutes but Muzei can blur and dim the images so you get the best of both worlds. If you want blurring and dimming, use Wallpaper Changer plugin with Muzei, if you dont want any blurring or dimming, just use the wallpaper Changer app. You can create an album In Wallpaper Changer and put as many images you like in it, but to make multiple albums, you'll need the paid IAP. But with multiple albums you can have the app automatically set different albums at different times or even locations. So say nice dark space themed wallpapers of planets and galaxies at night and bright nature wallpapers during the daytime.
Hiki Player (by kazufukurou)
The best Folder Music player I have come across. Its audio quality is better than stock android as it sounds like other apps such as Poweramp. It has a "Play one song only" repeat toggle. It has the seekbar at the base of the page so you dont need to go to the now playing page. Basically, if you are used to playing individual songs on your Pc via Vlc or something then this app can replicate that behavior. Dark theme. There is an option that stops making it take color from the album art which some people would prefer. Free with ads. The screenshots on playstore dont do it justice as they make it seem cluttered.
FORM Clock Widget (by Michael Beaton)
A clock widget that changes color based on the current wallpaper. Though the design may not be for everyone. Combine this with the color changing Action Launcher, along with Muzei blurring wallpapers changed by Wallpaper Changer app plugin, along with a color changing Chrooma Keyboard and enjoy the wonderful theming ability of simple stock Android.
ISS Detector Satellite Tracker (by RunaR)
Tells you when the International Space Station is passing above you so that you can see it in real life. I was just looking for an app that could show me the path of the ISS so that I could go outside and see it but I was not expecting to find something as detailed and easy to use as ISS Detector. This app shows you where the ISS will be passing from in "radar" mode, you can even tilt the phone in the direction of the ISS with the provided elevation. It shows you the ISS on the map as well and can give you notifications when its time to go out and see it. It even tells you how bright its going to be, usually -2.5 and above are easily viewable and -3.5 is very clear in the sky.
Just when I thought you could not add anything more to the app, the dev added a feature where if you point the phone to the sky, it shows a star map and where in the sky the ISS will be passing in relation to those stars. I have seen the ISS pass by in real life several times now all thanks to this app. All this is Free. An additional IAP shows even more objects whereas the free one shows the ISS and Iridium satellites.
You can couple this app with ISS onLive (by PoliLabs) to watch live via the two cameras placed onboard the ISS. Amazing views of our planet in its round shape in realtime. Wonderful time to be alive to be able to simply do this with a device in your hand and a free app.
Here are a short list of apps that i like:
Rotation - Orientation Manager - Can rotate any app you want. And the controls are very fine
Caffeine - For when you do not want your screen to go off
MAPS.ME - I often use this when travelling as it does not need data to run. You can download country maps you need beforehand
Native Clipboard - A clipboard that just works well
Reddit is Fun - I know that a lot of reddit apps have cropped up but i still come back to reddit is fun. Best reddit app imo
App Usage - Great app to get the statistics of your app usage and how many times you check your phone throughout the day
A short list of my most used productivity apps.
Rotation - Orientation Manager - A great app to control rotation, can also force on a per app basis
Power Toggles - I am sometimes lazy to pull down the notification bar so this widget makes it easier
Native Clipboard Manager - Copy and pastes any text between apps
App Usage - Will give check phone count, install history and app usage time
Caffeine - Usually have my phone on 30s dim other than a few apps using this
DiskUsage - WinDirStat for android
Accubattery - Great app for analyzing battery usage
My Data Manager - Displays data usage over data and wifi with simple graphs
My screen won't rotate properly its always in the opposite direction (this doesn't happen in other apps) and when I get an app to force it to stay in a certain orientation ( Rotation Oreintation - Manager) it flips to normal but the touch points don't meaning as far as touch goes its like the screen never flipped meaning of I click the screen nothing works until I click where the would be if the screen was flipped
Upside down is how it looks to me as well btw
Edit:put up a better version so you can see problem easier
Edit2: things I've tried
Using an app to force the screen to landscape Rotation Oreintation - Manager I can use this to flip things right side up but the touch points are still out of sync with my status bar now coming from the bottom of the screen
Turning auto rotate off and on
Clearing data cache etc
Other people with the same problem
You can use that app to set rotation per app.
This seems to be what you're looking for
Haven't tried it with the magnetic charger, but I use this app
There's much easier apps than Tasker. Here's one of them but there's many more.
Rotation - Orientation Manager. You can control per app rotation too.
Rotation. It irked me that my lockscreen did not rotate but this app fixed that. Dev is responsive too
Not sure but give Rotation Orientation Manager a try,
For my Car profile I use Rotation - Orientation Manager, it integrates a tasker plugin.
Try Rotation-Orientation ManagerIt works great and I hope it works the same for you.
I mean... it has a "Hidden" Landscape mode. You can try one of these (I don't have an Ipad to test it, so I can't say if it works for sure):
I know that on Android this works for me:
Rotation - Orientation Manager
This has per-app settings if that's what you're looking for.
I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
It is fully featured, more than I need, and has Tasker integration.
I am that somebody I guess
edit: okay, disregard those the bot posted, here is the one I used and it worked pretty well
I have the same problem. I just installed this app to manually change the orientation when it happens.
You can either use a 3rd party app that can force landscape orientation or you can wait until Valve implements it.
I highly recommend this Rotation app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Can't say enough good things about it. Worth every penny.
Try "Rotation | Orientation Manager" App
If you mean that you want an app to always open in landscape, then this is the one you want
Do you have automatic screen rotation turned on? I mean the S10.
You can also try this app;
Here is explanation by Nvidia on what's going on with the orientation issue due to changes in Android 11: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/shield-tv/9/485445/shield-experience-upgrade-901-hotfix-image/3216890/
From one of the reply to the post by user <em>modmail</em>, mentioned that <em>Rotation | Orientation Manager</em> app worked. As usual, the app need to be sideload.
Once installed, you'll need to:
1. Enable Modify system settings at the Special app access
2. Enable Display over other apps at the Special app access
3. Allow the app to use Accessibility Service at Settings>device preferences>Accessibility
since you are on android you can easily do that with an app
This is the app I use: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
You can customize it to force different orientations per app if you want. It's a great app!
This app will help you in "Full Sensor" mode:
It costs only $0 and the adds are not annoying... (good enough for me)
I've been wanting to do this too. Your post prompted me to do some googling and I found this app that does it well
This app supports per app rotation:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation is simpler than the xposed option
This app gives you customizable control over rotation.
I love it.
Try this one. Swiss knife for all rotation needs.
I use Rotation Orientation Manager to force landscape on apps like Fitbit. Works well for Fitbit and most apps.
I don't have a solution, but you can use this app as a temporary workaround: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
It is using rotation control app like this one
An app that forces the screen rotation even if it isnt supported. I tried many and in my opinion this one is the best free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
No ,use this app it is much more better
It overdrive system and more choice
Oh I used this app to force it to landscape. It ain't perfect but it works pretty damn good
If u aren't using nova, use this app
there are rotate apps on the store, just download one. i normally use this one
I use this ...is different than the one post by u/mgranja but I guess they're similar and one is the same as the other
Link for app in Google play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
It's intentional but you can use this to flip the screen over
Here's the one I'm using: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Try this. It works perfectly for me (upside down too �� ).
This app helps on Android:
which of these 3 apps woudl u recommend as a per app screen rotation manager? All 3 were recommended here and I'm wondering which one to use
The app I used to use is simply called Rotation ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation )
Found an app that fixes it. :)
Set force orientation to portrait.
This app allows it. And it lets you pick which apps can trigger upside down mode etc.
Just curious, how's it different from this?
Wait that's the wrong one
Nevermind, found this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Orientation lock on a per app basis. Try this..
Rotation does the job quite well!
I've heard good things about Rotation Orientation.
Try using Rotation Orientation Manager.
If it fails you may have a hardware problem.
Maybe this app is what you're looking for then? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
You can use this app to do what you're looking for.
I think this is what you are looking for https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation
Hands down, the best app available for rotation control. Almost endless customizations, configurations, quick panel tiles/toggles, and Tasker integration... Just awesome. Highly recommend. Developer is quick to respond and very helpful.
Rotation - Orientation Manager is a good bet.
Unfortunately Tasker can only enable/disable autorotation by itself.
Tasker, as has been suggested. Alternatively, something like this app.
