    Force screen Rotation?

    I noticed some apps default to portrait position, even though auto rotation is enabled.

    Is it possible to force rotate the display of an app to landscape position that defaults to portrait position?

    The apps you are referring to are designed to be used by android phones, using the stock ROM, I don't believe there is any way to force it.

    There are a few apps in the Google Play store that come up if you do a search for"rotation control". I don't know anyone who has tried them but you may get one that works.

    There are some similar threads listed at the bottom of this page. There may be suggestions there.

    I use an app called "Ultimate Rotation Control" (free version) that will let you select forced rotation by app. Use it for NPR News, Sportacular & a local news site. Works well. Hope that helps

    I use an app called Rotation Control by Fame It, that will put an app in an orientation that it wasn't meant to be in, although it does usually stretch out one that's meant to be seen vertically.

    I also use Ultimate Rotation Control and swear by it. It is the only app I have found that will force rotation to the view I want. It has a widget and handy access through the notification bar. It's a well-designed app.

    Be aware, the free version is only a trial. It has all the features, but will only work for 7 days. I believe the full version costs around $1.99 or something like that. It gives you enough time to see if it will work in the way you want. As far as I'm concerned, it's worth every penny and then some.

    i use "Screen Orientation Control" by EFLOW INC., you can search in Google Play, its free. So far its the best for my TF700 , as i tried other rotation control apps but got sluggish response (swiping between home screens). Works well on Spotify and Flipboard, especially when connected on keyboard dock. but its not all perfect, as you may experience on some apps the screen is stretched or shrunk (ie, Cut the Rope and Coin Dozer) but overall works well for me. Thanks!
