    Recommendations on a very light weight app (I'd rather not use a launcher as I'm trying to keep my Nexus 7 fast and free from anything excessive) that will allow me to orient the icons on the Nexus 7 to be in Landscape mode?

    I will be using this device in my car and having the screen in portrait mode looks very weird.

    I've seen this on a YouTube video when someone from a custom audio shop - Sonic Electronix showed the install of a Nexus 7 in a truck. All the home screens were in landscape mode.

    I didn't realise that the Nexus 7 cannot orient the home screen to landscape like my Transformer. Is there no setting that turns autorotate on or off?

    The code was literally pushed to AOSP today, so the update may take a day or two to find its way to your device. Just hang tight if you can and it will show up.
