Thread: Disable Accelerometer

  1. #1
    Default Disable Accelerometer
    It would be great if there were a way to disable the accelerometer so I can read long emails lying down. I send large .doc files to my email and read them while lounging around, the page always ends up in landscape; which sucks.

    Just a thought. I would do it myself if I knew how.

    Props to developers!

    I think this is a great idea as well!

    Haha, I do this too.

    Only tip I can give:
    It won't turn if the top of the phone (headset side) is down.
    So turn it to the side, then turn it again and it will stay vertical for your eyes.

    yep, i do the same thing haha when surfing the web.

    If I worked for apple... a good way to implement something like this would be that if you had your finger on the screen while you turned it, then the screen would not rotate
