About Auto Rotation for Lying Down

Do you use your phone or tablet while lying on your side? When auto rotation is on and you're on your side, the screen rotates and faces the wrong way. This app makes auto rotation work properly when you're on your side. The screen still rotates automatically, but it's 90 degrees off from normal.

• Use auto screen rotation while lying on your side
• Use portrait or landscape when auto rotation is disabled
• Toggle auto-rotation using a notification
• Hold the device upside-down

Known Issues
Because of the way Android works, the app has these problems:
• Uninstalling doesn't reset the screen orientation. You can work around this by using the uninstall feature in the app.
• Breaks auto-rotation when watching a YouTube video.
• Doesn't work for some apps that control the screen rotation.
• May temporarily stop working when the device is low on RAM. (You might notice the notification temporarily disappear.)

Other known unresolved problems are listed at

• Modify system settings: To change screen orientation and system auto rotation
• Run at startup: So this continues working when your device is restarted

What are users saying about Auto Rotation for Lying Down

by O####:

When I have a video open it doesn't rotate, but if I slide the video down to the low right corner it works. Why? Please fix it, otherwise it's the EXACT app I've been searching for for like a year now. Fix it and I will give 5 stars.

I installed it on a one-week-old LG K7 and it didn't work, so I hope that it would, uninstalling until we can figure things out

by P####:

On my S7edge duos sm-g935fd, able to reverse portrait display. Kudos dev

by M####:

The allow reversible image feature is unique and neccesary that other apps could not do.

by B####:

It works, it's convenient. A proper light weight app with no weird permission requests.
