    Does anyone know if there is an app or something that I can do to assign my search hard button to be designated as my screen rotation toggle? I rarely use screen rotation, but when I do, I want to do it on the fly and not have to go to a widget or application button.

    Good question. I'd like to know the answer also.

    I have yet to find one. Rarely do I use landscape, but from time to time I would like to use it without having to go into settings. There are toggle apps that will allow you to toggle auto rotation on and off, but that is the best I've found so far.

    That has to be unkind to your battery life, I'd guess... it would have to be perpetually monitoring the accelerometer.
