5 Android apps to unlock maximum screen rotation control

5 Android apps to unlock maximum screen rotation control
Screen orientation is something that often gets annoying on Android. Is there an app that you'd love to use in landscape mode, yet such a feature isn't implemented? Or perhaps you'd simply love it if a particular bunch of apps you have installed always opened in portrait orientation and stayed there, no matter what?

Don't you worry there, fella, the Google Play store has got you covered! We've lined up five rotation manager apps that will let you lock your screen in place, force specific apps in any direction you want, and apply other customizations. With these apps, you'll have near full control over your smartphone's rotation behaviour, and you'll finally sleep soundly.

All of the five apps below are free to use. Some are ad-supported and contain in-app purchases. Almost all do the same thing in a different way. So no matter which one you choose, you'll be set. Grab ahold of them by tapping the blue links in the slideshow, and enjoy!

"Screen orientation is something that often gets annoying on Android" Lol, always gotta start it off with a misleading BS claim...nothing more annoying than what I experienced on iOS, but wasn't even annoying to begin with, IMO. Eitherway, good to have these rotation-lock per-app controls...thanks for shearing.

srsly, why does every Android article come with a snarky comment yet every iOS article portrays the phone as doing no wrong?
