    My rooted Nook Simple Touch lacks an orientation sensor. I want to rotate it two ways:

    1. Tap an icon on the status bar (or in notifications, but I'd prefer status bar). I don't want a menu from it, I just want it to switch between landscape and portrait immediately.

    2. Run it from app drawer/home screen/etc. Again, single tap change orientation immediately. I would hook this up to a hardware button.

    All my searches are fruitless. Most are made to enable/disable autorotation or lock the current orientation. The closest I've come is this:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.intri.autorotateswitch
    ...but I can't make it rotate from an icon/hardware button, and it requires extra taps to open notifications, open menu, choose orientation.

    Of course I'm looking for free and small.

    Any suggestions?

    My boyfriend has been searching for an app that does that for almost a year now. Let me know if you find anything?

    Check the top of the forum... I think there's a sticky where you can request apps.
