Auto rotation fuzz..
« on: February 26, 2017, 18:27:38 »
Hi!
I would want to add Sensor to Orientation Lock.

User case:
The only app on my device that use Landscape is Locus. I activate Auto rotate in notification bar, and navigate.. in a dashboard holder. Leave car, search geocache or whatever. Come back home, disable Auto rotation.
Well, went to playstore, found auto rotate app activated pr. app... activate for Locus only. Hallelujah, this removes the Notification bar step, works like a charm!

Until hitting Hint... bam... Locus crashes hard 😢 (doesn't even manage to display dialogbox)

Possible to add Sensor as an option?

Regards Hallgeir

Sidenote:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.windyty.android (Weather forcast app) is a great example of an app that uses Senor instead of Android Auto rotate feature..

Just my 5 cent ☺

Which exact Auto Rotate App did you try, Hallgair ?

Good day Haggi,
I'm not sure what exactly is the problem.

If Locus Map crash for any reason, we needs a log: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:how_to_create_debug_log

To force Locus Map to use certain orientation, please use settings > display > orientation lock

Hi  :)

Sorry for my late response to this.

What i asked about was adaptive screen rotation option.

But no worries, found even better solution.

3.rd part app - - > https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ui.robot.rotate is everything i ever wanted and needed!

Should be standard in every Android phone..  ;D

Have a great weekend
