Hi All! I made this handy little utility after being annoyed with how some apps handle orientation control and constantly having to toggle the rotation lock in my settings panel. Just set any app's orientation and forget about it and Swivel handles the rest. For the devs out there: Swivel uses a very lightweight technique for listening to app changes (using accessibility access). You shouldn't even notice it's running! Orientation settings include: default (whatever you set in the os settings) portrait (normal) portrait (inverted) landscape (normal) landscape (inverted) auto landscape (uses accelerometer) auto portrait (uses accelerometer) auto full 360 (uses accelerometer) Happy to answer any questions and would love any suggestions/feedback
