    The title about sums it up. I'm on Froyo, and would really like an app to stop the damn screen rotating clockwise to the landscape orientation. If there's an option to do it I haven't found it, and if there isn't I may have to find the nearest google employee and yell at him till he fixes it. :p

    I'm not looking for something to lock screen rotation using a toggle, I still want it to rotate anticlockwise. Any help would be appreciated!

    Yeah I found that so annoying, I downloaded a widget toggle its perfect:
    " AutoRotate Bar Widget "

    I said NOT looking for a toggle. ;) I'd like a permanent setting. However a toggle in the status bar would be a compromise if I can't find what I need.

    Szadzik - That stops rotation both ways. I only want to stop it rotating clockwise, I still want the anticlockwise rotation enabled.

    I've got Sense on the DInc. It only seems to rotate to landscape when you turn the phone counter-clockwise. Turning the phone clockwise doesn't do anything to it. At least not with Google Maps anyway.

    Froyo with Sense allows bi-directional rotation. I don't know about plain Froyo.
