Very handy and have been using it for months. One thing that's super inconvenient it the mechanisms by which that I need to jump through just to disable the app. I wish it was easier to turn off on the fly.

S70%

I've been battling a screen orientation issue with a lot of apps on my Asus Google Player which is an Android Box. Perfect solution to the issue I was having. I have a couple enhancements I'd like to added in but that's more for convenience then functionality.

L70%
by L####:

The reason I bought the app was so that I could lock my home screen in portrait, while letting everything else rotate freely. When I lock "Nexus 5X Home Screen" in the app, it seems to have no effect. It works for all other apps, just not the home screen. This means that I have to natively lock the home screen in portrait, and then go through ALL my apps and set each one to rotate freely. Not sure why it wouldn't work for just the homes screen. Some feedback would be appreciated.

I70%
by I####:

All my apps would still rotate to landscape (even while locked in portrait) for a quick second then fix itself.

W70%
by W####:

It's been a while since I've been looking for an app as good as this one. Simple and flawless!

I've tried loads of these type of apps. This one works perfectly.

Super useful. Love it!

This app didn't work for me on my Samsung S5. I want my money back.

S70%
by S####:

This app was exactly what I wanted, unfortunately it failed to live up to the hype. It seems to have a very serious problem with the global defaults and it really combats every app that I open. Making matters worse this app does a complete scan of every single package on your phone including system UI stuff that gets difficult to track down in terms of orientation settings. Nevertheless I set everything the way I wanted and it still struggles. Major annoyances like screen rotation in multi tasking need fix.

T70%
by T####:

Great app, customer service is top notch with prompt feedback. Makes droid easier to use. Samsung Note 4 on AT&T

I70%
by I####:

Should be built in to Android. Reading apps should never rotate, movie playback always horizontal. Then some need to go back and forth. Glas to have this evening when I have pay.

U70%
by U####:

Set each app individually to be locked to always portrait/landscape or leave to system setting. So I can make sure I don't go landscape mid-text message, but my videos always start landscape, pictures portrait, other apps set to change as normal. You can lock to Portrait/Landscape Up or Down only, or still leave that to the accelerometer! Just missing a batch option - I'd lock everything to portrait then change a few apps back, by exception.

This is what I 'm looking4. It is good vs 0.99$ paid

D70%
by D####:

Just installed the app......it seems to be fighting my tablet for orientation. Played with it and locked kind of got it to work but, then it cut off a portion of the screen that is necessary.

W70%
by W####:

Tried most of the similar apps. This is the only one that doesn't get killed by touchwiz on S6 Edge+ and uses less than 10mb while running in the background!!

Z70%
by Z####:

Working through some issues. Very responsive developer. Let's get this worked out!

A70%
by A####:

I got a warning message that Swivel would access whatever I entered into the phone, including credit card numbers. This sounds alarming, and not a function related to its purpose. Should I be alarmed about this? I won't use it if it is spying on me.

R70%
by R####:

There is a flaw in this app... I've used rotational apps before... but this one does NOT do it correctly. It will cut off icons on your screen instead of resizing/fixing after doing the rotation.

J70%
by J####:

Works as described on the Moto X (2013) with 5.1.

Y70%
by Y####:

Good idea. But it too lag when open.

F70%
by F####:

It's perfect. It seems like there is always an app that turns the wrong way just as you are about to use it, then, it seems like it takes a decade for it to rotate back. This eliminates that completely.

C70%
by C####:

Works as described.

E70%
by E####:

Great app very useful!

N70%
by N####:

Cannot grant root, causes issues also with other apps. Uninstalled.

H70%
by H####:

Nice app now when i go to make a call my phone will not flip side ways and mess my dialing up.thank you.

K70%
by K####:

Solves one of the most annoying issues I had with my phone. Totally worth the price.

O70%
by O####:

Excellent

X70%
by X####:

Well designed app, intuitive and really useful. Better than relying on the native screen rotation. Simple to customize!

P70%
by P####:

Have been looking for a good screen orientation manager for a while. I hate my phone's auto-rotation feature and it is so annoying to always switch the screen lock. This finally fixes all of that. Just set it once and you're in complete control of your phone's screen for every app! Definitely a must-have utility

M70%
by M####:

Convenient little app. Does what it's supposed to.

B70%
by B####:

It did what it was supposed to do for many apps, but reset orientation for things that I could not control with the app such as the home and lock screen. It also couldn't control the stock messaging app, which is the one I wanted changed most of all.

Q70%
by Q####:

Picture gallery doesn't come up on the list of apps that will swivel. That was the one I wanted.

G70%
by G####:

Didn't carry out its primary function.. Worthless to me. Xperia z2

S70%

Kept freezing every time I tried to use the apps I set to a certain orientation
