About Sideways Mode

Do you use your phone while lying on your side? When you do, the screen turns to face the wrong way. Sideways Mode fixes this by making the screen face sideways so that it's aligned with your head. See the video for a demonstration.

Permissions
• Modify system settings: To change screen orientation and system auto rotation
• Draw over other apps / display system-level alerts: To override other apps' screen orientations
• Small app overlay (Sony users only): So you can use a small app to change screen orientation

(This app was formerly called "Auto Rotation for Lying Down".)

Edit: Yes, I updated but then I reverted to the previous version ... don't like this new one. Thanks. [Previous]: On my S7edge duos sm-g935fd, able to reverse portrait display. Kudos dev

Good app thank you

G70%
by G####:

It allows to work upside down, which is great (and the reason why I installed it). However, it starts in locked mode, so after launching it a manual intervention is needed.

S70%
by S####:

Phenomenal App! If it is possible can you please make an option to not look for a rotation sensor ... For landscape view all the time, and force rotation of all apps to landscape view regardless of rotation sensor even existing. Excellent for those of us using an external display monitor.

Excellent OPEN SOURCE, no ads, auto rotation app. I am using it to rotate an app that normally is locked in portrait only, and now I can force portrait mode. For the few apps that break by forcing the rotation, just add them to the override list. Also doesn't need un-needed permissions. Excellent work! EDIT: I wrote it backwards, add the apps to the override where you want to force rotations for the ones that don't break. Thanks Sam!

This app is great! It does what it says on the box but it does it simply and elegantly. You can even change the notification priority if you'd prefer not to see the icon in the notification bar at the top of the screen all the time.

Finally. Reverse support on a reverse supported device. Doesnt force one when it should be the other resulting in partial or glitchy draw, All in less than few seconds and more importantly - less button bloat. Took a few tries to figure out specifically: 1) Tick reverse in app settings. 2) Open troublesome or test app - eg. one way portrait. 3) Open drawer and tap auto in notification to reset. 4) Rotate by hand, to default opposite orientation ie. If debugging portrait, rotate to default landscape. 5) Open drawer and tap first button ie closer to icon. 6) Tap lock when screen rotates and enjoy the new ease. May or may not be a battery drainer but now lefthand can be used as often as right. And cables can choose their own orientation. Without random, completely unecessary stress on plug sockets and angles and too many other things.

Perfect for lazy people who use their phone lying down. I was searching for an app like this for a while, and I finally found it. It had a few issues but they were fixed immediately after reported. Love this.

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

O70%
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.
