    Hi guys!

    I've just released a new app called Orientation Control that locks the phone's orientation. This is not just simply disabling the phone's auto rotate sensor, but it actually forces the phone to stay in that orientation mode. It supports both Landscape and Portrait mode.

    Also, it does not require root.

    Here is a description of the app:

    Orientation Control serves two main purposes:
    1. As an orientation lock
    2. As an easy to access orientation switch shortcut. No more going through the long process of opening Settings > Display to change your orientation!

    Orientation Control can lock the orientation to FIVE modes:
    1. Landscape
    2. Reversed Landscape (Android 2.3.1 and above only)
    3. Portrait (Same as disabling auto rotate in phone's settings)
    4. Forced Portrait (Always in portrait regardless of app!)
    5. Auto Rotate

    It is currently listed for $1.49 on the android market.

    Hell yeah! Thank you so much coinsk, I too have been looking for months - finally did a forum search here and found this gem. I use my sgs gb almost exclusively in landscape and I'm stoked on this app :D
