How to Disable Auto Rotation for Individual Apps on Android

Hello everyone, today in this article we will show you how to turn off automatic rotation for individual apps on Android. What do you use your Android smartphone for? We don’t know about you, but we use our smartphones for playing games, watching videos, reading, chatting, and endlessly browsing news and social media site history. Phones have become so advanced that they perform multiple functions for us. They serve as a camera, entertainment devices, gaming devices, and more. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Android’s Auto Rotate feature automatically changes screen orientation based on how you hold the phone. This can be useful for quickly switching between portrait and landscape modes, perhaps to watch YouTube videos in full screen. However, if you go to Twitter and accidentally tilt your phone too much, you may find yourself tilting it back and forth to adjust the screen orientation to portrait. To solve this problem, follow the steps below. Before proceeding, we recommend you to update android

How to Disable Auto Rotation for Certain Apps on Android

Step 1: Install Rotation Manager

To install Rotation Manager, simply go to the Google Play Store and download the app for free.

Step 2: Set Up Rotation Manager

When you open Rotation Manager for the first time, an initial setup and tutorial page is displayed. Go to the next page and tap the circular icon next to “Auto Rotation On” until the text changes to “Forced Portrait.” This will set the vertical mode by default and you can customize the rotation for other applications later.

Step 3: Grant Permissions

Once you get to the final page, you will have the option to turn off “Permanent Notification,” which is on by default. If you leave it on, the app will appear as a notification whenever you swipe from top to bottom on the screen, but it will also help ensure that the app is not closed by Android’s memory management system while it is running in the background. It is therefore a judgment call, but we have not encountered any problems with the option turned off, so that is what we recommend.

After setting it up, activate Rotation Manager using the circular power icon in the app. You will be redirected to a system settings page for accessing usage data, so scroll down and look for “Rotation Manager.” Once found, tap on it and enable the Allow usage tracking item. When finished, return to the app and press the check mark at the bottom of the page to complete the initial setup.

Step 4: Choose Which Apps Can Rotate

Now it is time to set and control the orientation of individual apps. On the main screen of Rotation Manager, you can select an orientation by tapping the vertical or horizontal icons next to a specific app to lock it in landscape or portrait mode. By highlighting both icons, the app in question will be able to rotate automatically.

Step 5: Never Deal with Accidental Rotation Again

At this point, everything is ready for use. From now on, you no longer have to worry about an app automatically rotating when you do not want it to, but it will be locked in the orientation chosen in Rotation Manager.

Final Words
