Rotate feature is great in smart devices but can get annoying at times. Because you might just not want to rotate the screen while viewing it. Whereas the way device is rotated, might change the screen orientation as well. Many users keep their auto-rotation feature off, regardless of what they are doing on their smart device. Being able to control Android screen rotations for each app would be a great option. After some research on Google Play Store, I was able to locate the one and only rotation control application which would stay on my device for good and for a long.
How To Control Android Screen Rotations
Ultimate Rotation Control is one of a kind. As the name says, it gives users complete control over Android screen rotations. Either it’s your viewing screen, lock screen, or application screen. You can have a dedicated rotation based on the nature of the task about to be performed. URC (as we might call it) for Android is simple, easy to use and has a small cost to it. Worries are over because developers have a free version available in the market which can be tried for 7 days with full features. The license can be bought for $2.59 CDN.
Moving on, after successful installation and notification icon would appear. Three quick settings are available based on user preferences: Auto forced auto and portrait. These can be further adjusted from application settings. Available rotations which can be picked anytime are:
- Forced Auto
- Lock Current
- Auto Portrait
- Reverse Portrait
- Auto Landscape
- Reverse Landscape
From the same settings, Android screen rotations can be set either for a dedicated application or globally (for all tasks). Settings allow you to adjust global rotation and rotation choices. Notification and selection popups can be enabled/disabled from the same menu. Users can enable per application and lock screen rotation control.
Some other key features of this great tool include true orientation lock, forced automatic rotation, and optimization for devices. This app can be installed for versions varying from 1.6 to 4.0. We tested it on 4.2.2 without any lags or crashes. Notification controls would only work for version 3.0 and higher. Plus, reverse portrait and landscape are completely supported for version 2.3 and higher.
Next time a screen fix is required, a slide down on notifications and a quick tap on the icon can get you all the settings required for the screen. Overall, it’s all in one app for all Android screen rotation needs. Users can easily get it going without having a root and it supports all versions and devices. WT recommends this application for your Android screen rotations and control needs.
