Default Home screen rotate

Does the home screen not rotate on the s3? Any way to enable this?

Go into the settings, display settings, and make sure that "auto rotate" is checkmarked, if not, checkmark it.

I think I read that stock TouchWiz doesn't rotate the homescreen. You could always install a different launcher though, easy fix.

Apex Launcher or Nova Launcher on the Play Store are IMO the best options for our phones

I was a big fan of GO Launcher on my Droid X.

Have used ADW Launcher and Go Launcher, I like Go Launcher best at the moment, no problems with it and it is free.

Found this in another thread but I'd figure I'd post it here since this is the first one that comes up in a google search.

There's a free app in the Play store called Ultimate Rotation Control from FAME IT that seems to work great so far on my S3.

Free app only for 7 days then you have to buy the licence.

Thanks for the tip
