    Hi, does anyone know of an app that will turn the autorotate on / off from within an app on long search key press (or another key press)?

    I have searched the market / google and can't find anything...

    Many Thanks

    Matt

    You can launch Quick Settings by a long search key press and then click the toggle button, maybe not exactly what you want but at least you don't need to leave the app you are in, back key dismisses QS.

    Thanks braj, that's what I'm doing at the moment (just being very lazy really!)

    Thanks again.

    Just as an aside that may prove useful... Power Strip will let you bring up widgets/shortcuts etc over any app/part of the UI, you could use it with any toggle widget you wanted, may have a little more utility than the one already recommended (although the more narrow app may fit your needs perfectly).

    Great find. Will try that out now. Been looking for something to do this.

    EDIT: Long press of search brings up voice search "speak now" on my Droid X. How do I get that to stop and let either quick settings or rotation toggler take over the long press of search?

    EDIT2: I needed to run this on my Droid X

    It replaces the DX voicesearch.apk with a hacked version.
