    Sometimes the screen auto-rotates when I don't want it to if I angle the phone slightly. I am constantly toggling it on and off. To do so of course, I have to go into settings, then display. Does anyone know of an app that I can add the toggle switch as a shortcut on my desktop? It is kind of a pain to go through the settings each and every time. I would much rather just hit it easily on my homescreen.

    Wouldn't it be nice if there was a touch input you could perform to manually rotate the screen. Like a two fingered swype or something.

    The new iPod nano does this. You make the motion with 2 fingers like you're physically turning it. I saw it and the first thought in my head was "I WANT MY DROID TO DO THAT!"

    With all the features they come up with I'm surprised this one is just now hitting the market (with the nano). I've wanted to be able to manually rotate like that for a while now...

    It's one of the toggles in EasySwitch.
