This app was mentioned in
with an average of
Ultimate Rotation Control.
It does cost money, but it lets you try it out for a week for free. One of the very few apps I've ever spent money on, and I've never regretted it.
I use ultimate rotation control to tell the phone when I want it to rotate, and can setup app profiles so it changes the rotation depending on which app is in the foreground.
Ok first you need this app (and its subsequent license) [link]
Then here's the task. From 8pm to 6am, if it's plugged in, it'll go to reverse portrait. And go back to portrait on exit.
Oh also in settings>battery>optimization you need to turn off optimization on tasker and that rotation app.
Download here. [link]
Open it with tasker. Then in tasker double click on the profiles tab and import.
The best thing I've found for Android is Ultimate Rotation Control. You can create per-app settings, so YouTube is always full rotation, while Chrome is always portrait, for example. Also includes reverse landscape and reverse portrait, which is nice when the charge cord makes normal landscape/portrait inconvenient. And you can have a thing on the pulldown menu to automatically change the setting of your current app.
It costs $3, but you can try it out for a week for free to see if you like it, first.
It's not perfect, but it's a lot better than the default controls on my phone.
[link] - ultimate rotation control. I was willing to pay for it for my trusty old Nexus 7 2013 because that has issues with the rotation sensor, but it's been mighty handy on the phone too. The ability to place specific apps in either portrait or landscape regardless of how the phone is turned helps, and you have easy access to rotation locks and such. It's not flashy or dramatic but it's useful every day to me.
Is this a problem with your phone or just this game?
If you're on Android, there are apps you can get to force different screen orientations. You could try one of them, try a couple orientations, and see if it does what you want. Here's a couple examples:
1. Ultimate Rotation Control, free 7 day trial, then $3 USD for app.
2. Rotation Lock Adaptive, basic version free, $2 USD for pro version with more features.
There's a bunch of other ones if you don't like these. Search for terms like "orientation" or "rotation" on the Play Store.
Another option that uses the game itself: If you are in a dungeon, when you force close the app and then restart the app, the floor contents will be reset and objects will move around, including the exit location. This is commonly referred to as "s/l" or "sl".
I've been using ultimate rotation control to make the lock screen and the launcher rotate. Works great and I don't think it needs root.
Now now.. Let me help you!
Try this app if you are using android. Select Force Auto mode and YouTube app will now play fullscreen vertical videos.
I use the plugin Ultimate Rotation Control, and it works fine with Tasker. In fact you don't even need Tasker, you can just use the app standalone and choose the "forced auto" mode, that way your screen will forcefully stay in your physical orientation and will not allow other apps to override it. It works fine on my Oreo on Nexus 6P, but I can't say if it'll work on the S9 or not. Worth a try though.
There are a bunch of apps on the Play Store that will give you greater control of your rotation settings. If you set it to forced landscape even apps that are only meant to run in portrait will remain in landscape for better or worse. I know Ultimate Rotation Control has worked for me in the past.
I spent a bunch of time looking at the apps available to help with this on my Pixel XL (previously I used an xposed module, but I'm trying to avoid rooting now).
The best app I found was this one:
I have things like camera, google photos, youtube set to autorotate. Otherwise I like to keep things on portrait.
The only downside with this compared to the 'app settings' xposed module is that I could no longer use the built-in quick setting for toggling autorotate. It would mess with the app's behaviour (or I'd end up with forced landscape after leaving Youtube or something). To get around this, I use QuickTile, and Ultimate Rotation Control has a plugin so you can create a custom quick setting to rotate between portrait and autorotate (e.g. if you're in random situation and you want to rotate.. e.g. a webpage or video in a webpage). Let me know if you want any further help with this.
Force video apps into landscape, force the home screen into portrait, or any number of things. Or lock the entire phone into portrait or landscape. Etc.
Hey, so replying to you earlier really got me thinking about why I didn't try to fix the problem with an app. I mean, I was 100% sure it wasn't a hardware issue.
So I installed Ultimate rotation control and bam! It works.
You can hide the app icons from settings, it's pretty configurable and it worked perfect up until now. It's not the ideal workaround, but for a lazy one like me that doesn't want to flash something else, it works
Yup, I hope they fix it in android N. For now I'm using the app called "ultimate rotation control" which has per app settings. Here's the link to it: [link]
lI'd recommend this one: [link]
I even paid for the premium version. You can make profiles for specific apps - say, a video player. You can force it to always switch to landscape. And you can force your log-in screen to always be portrait. And so on.
Plus, it can put a rotation control with three choices right in your drop-down menu. I have auto, portrait and landscape there, so switching orientation is literally a swipe-touch.
The only thing I can't get fully reliable is some games that want to rotate into landscape, the only way they work right is by forcing the phone to landscape first using the above method, or by setting the phone to auto. Other than that, it works flawlessly.
Plan to use it on my phone also, because the ability to force some apps into a specific rotation is gold, especially for video playback, I can't imagine any circumstance where I'd want video to be portrait even though I might have locked the phone in portrait to do other things.
I found an app for you that does not need root.
Try Ultimate Rotation Control.
I disabled GravityBox to try this app out and it worked. No root needed.
Really makes it difficult to play in bed when I'm supposed to be asleep. My Nexus 6 has a huge screen, but not huge enough for landscape AdvCapitalist.
Anyway, I found a couple that look like they can target specific apps. There are probably more.
I'm not sure if it will work, but you can try something like Ultimate Rotation Control. The app is free for seven days so you should be able to see if it solves your problem.
Try Ultimate Rotation Control
Forced 3/4 Auto mode will allow anything except reverse portrait. It works by itself or as a Tasker plugin.
Hi, I believe this app is what you're looking for.
It's only a seven day trial, I have the pro version and can say it's definitely paid for itself through utility, you can force rotation orientations on apps, lock them in a specific view, apply settings globally, or on a per app basis, and even comes with customisable quick toggle in the notifications bar
I have this problem as well. I sent it away for an RMA. It came back and had exactly the same problem.
Over time it's gotten worse. Now it won't ever rotate automatically at all. Rebooting used to temporarily solve the issue for me as well but now that's ineffective as well.
I did stumble on this video at one point, which claims to provide an easy fix, but I haven't actually tested it out yet.
In the meantime I've been using Ultimate Rotation Control to force the rotation through software.
Yes, ultimate rotation control, not the prettiest, but if I remember right it works well
Ninja edit: otherwise you could just install xposed for kitkat or lollipop and then install xposed gel settings which allow for full customization of the Google now launcher including rotation enabling.
Not really, but maybe google...
Think it could have been this one
OTherwise try googling it yourself with "Force Landscape Mode"
This is what I used when half my screen was dead:
It's a screen rotation control app, let's you turn just about any screen to landscape or even upside down just by turning your phone. I ended up buying the donation license to get access to other features, and I managed to use my phone for another 4 months before finally replacing the screen. (This was years ago; idk if the app had substantially changed since then.)
I know this isn't what you were looking for, but maybe this'll be a good backup if you can't find a good mirror app.
The problem of certain apps not conforming to rotation is the apps' own decision, not a LOS problem, not even an Android problem.
Ultimate Rotation Control will force rotate all apps regardless of what they tell the OS, and with a little bit of setup you can make it seamlessly integrate with the OS's builtin rotation toggle. It's a paid app but there's a trial version.
Do note that those apps that refuse to rotate likely don't have a proper landscape view coded, and depending on the app inquestion, forcing rotation might result in some ugly UI.
Yes I also saw this. I tried the android Pie rotation features but it seemed too hard to use (especially with full screen apps like YouTube).
Now they've fixed it for Pie, I'm back to using this app:
Here is the app on the PlayStore where the developer has made a comment (31 March) in response to feedback saying it is no longer possible (in his view) to do this under Oreo:
On previous phones, I've used screen rotation apps so that I can split the time and wear between the top and bottom of my screen for the nav bar, but really, just keep your brightness down and leave your screen on 18 hours a day like those phone displays at AT&T do.
> Rotation lock! I wish rotation lock would automatically enable itself for certain apps.
Agreed, I've used this app to solve that but it should be built in.
Reverse Portrait: truly lock the screen in reverse portrait
I used this app on my phone/plug-in headset @ work with my phone using the wireless charging stand.
Worked perfectly just like the headset in was on the top of the phone.
In case you don't get that working and don't want to spend money on repairs, this might help: [link]
I had issues with another Android device not rotating, but with that software you can work around it mostly. You can even specify apps to always run horizontal or vertical, useful to force video playing apps into horizontal mode etc.
Very few people's eyes perceive the jelly effect. You can test this out yourself - rotate your screen to 180° and lock it in (if your ROM doesn't support it, use an app like Ultimate Rotation Control). Then use your phone for a bit and see if you notice the jelly effect and if it bothers you. If you don't notice it or it doesn't bother you then neither will the OP5's display.
I've upgraded from a 6P to a OP3 and it was worth it. Planning to get a OP5 myself around Christmas time. Development/community wise, OnePlus is the new Nexus so if you're into root/ROMs, this is the best device you can get right now (actually the OP3T is, but the OP5 is picking up steam, with official LineageOS already working well on it).
The problem is auto rotation and the fact that your phone thinks it's sideways. OK Google from screen off ONLY works if the phone is in portrait orientation. This app is an elegant workaround until they fix this. [link]
And you can tame it. With a rotation control app, you can set specific rotations for specific apps to run in, or disable rotation, or force the entire device into a specific rotation mode.
It's a shame you have to get extra software to do it, but at least on Android you can.
[link] - worth paying for.
The app rotates to horizontal when you start a turn-by-turn session if you turn your phone, otherwise it seems to remain vertical. You can also force it horizontal even without guidance being active (with a rotation select app) and it plays nice.
I really like this: [link] - even paid for it. You can specify which apps to force into a specific rotation every time, so you can automatically set HERE up to come up in landscape. And you get easily accessible rotation controls on the drop down menu (I have auto, portrait and landscape buttons and can easily choose one on the fly).
And you can definitely store maps on SD cards, I do that.
I never had any such problem on my 6p, but you might want to see if the <strong>Ultimate Rotation Control</strong> app will solve your problem. I've been happily using it for the past year on my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro tablet.
I've used this app before that let's you rotate anything.
It's not free however. You can try the trial to see if it's worth it for you. It's an essential app for me since I love having my home screen and apps in landscape when my phone is in my car dock.
are you sure? the screenshots show landscape. [link]
anyways this one does for sure as ive purchased it and used it, you get a 7 day trial [link]
It's a functional HTC Desire C smartphone, running Cyanogenmod and a few apps to lock horizontal orientation, prevent screen-off and add on-screen home/back buttons. I have a pip-boy active wallpaper.

Normally if I wear it in public though I loop a full-screen video of either the stats screen or Galaxy News Radio.
Getting a lot of questions about the costs etc.
Ultimate Rotation Control should fix your rotation issues.
Ultimate Rotation Control
I use Ultimate Rotation Control. It's a free 7-day trial, with a paid license (I don't remember the price).
Here's an image of the menu you get from the notification window.
It also lets you rotate the homescreen when you otherwise wouldn't be able to (at least on Nexus devices). Image.
Ultimate Rotation Control will almost certainly solve your problem and let you do whatever you want.
You can do force lock. Ultimate Rotation Control
Check out "Ultimate Rotation Control" - [link]
It doesn't work well though which is why it doesn't support it.
Maybe something like this? [link]
I've never used it, so there may be other similar apps that could work better.
Ultimate Rotation Control. No Xposed needed.

I know this is not a real solution, but try a rotstion control app like this:
I have been using Ultimate Rotation Control for this.
Try this. [link]
This should do it, it's payware though, it is only a free trial.
I use an app called Ultimate Rotation Control. It lets you control rotation on a per app basis and it is great.
Definitely the easiest app here:
I know a app which is the best at doing this job but i dont know if it would help you. anw, just give a try.
Ultimate rotation control: [link], apk: [link]
Or just tryRotation Control. This is another new but good apps: [link], apk: [link]
Workaround without editing the build... [link]
Set lock screen to force portrait.
If you don't want to use tasker, Ultimate Rotation Control Works really well on the 6p.
give that a try. i use it to rotate hangouts.
Did you mean "Ultimate Rotation Control" ?
You can use something like Ultimate Rotation Control to force damn near anything into a landscape orientation, although sometimes the results are imperfect. Other launchers like Action Launcher (my favorite) and Nova Launcher allow for that functionality natively.
I'd strongly recommend using one of those last two options, if only so you can increase the density of icons on the home screen. The stock launcher just feels like it wastes a lot of space, and I never understood why they'd do that with such a large screen.
7 day trial, after that it's $2 I think. But it does the job and more.
Go into settings, display, rotation, see if any you want are unchecked if this still doesn't help try ultimate rotation controll
