Easily Enable and Disable the Orientation Lock With This New Activator Plugin
Some of you probably hate how the device rotates on you when you donít want it to, for example when youíre laying on your side in bed and your iPhoneís orientation changes to fit gravity instead of your eyes. The rotation lock that iOS comes with allows this rotation feature to cease from working until you disable the lock. The rotation lock feature can be accessed from the multitasking App Switcher in the iPod controls section, but for some, that's still just an annoying hassle.
If youíre a fan of Ryan Petrichís free Activator application, then you should download a new free Activator plugin called Orientation Activator
by iOS developer Rickye
. Itís a listener that waits and watches for the user to perform the selected Activator action for the plugin; when performed, the iOS deviceís rotation lock will be enabled or disabled depending on its current state when you invoke the Activator action.
Simply put, just go into Activatorís preferences pane from the Settings application after you install the plugin, select an action, and assign it to your new Orientation Activator plugin. Now you can just invoke the action to enable and disable the rotation lock on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
Itís a really simple plugin that some people should find very helpful. To add the cherry on top, the plugin is absolutely free and you can snag it from the BigBoss repository today. The project is open source and its source code can be viewed on Github
. If you don't have Activator installed already, it will be installed upon trying to install Orientation Activator. Give it a try and let us know how you like it.
