Hello,

I'm looking into a Cosmo autorotate problem, could someone look in Android settings, Accessibility, and in the Interaction controls section see if there is an Auto-rotate screen setting?

On my Gemini there is, but not on the Cosmo. Thanks.

Steve.

Hi Steve,

sorry, no option for Auto-rotate in the location you've specified.

There is:
Dwell timing
Power button ends call
Touch & hold delay
Vibration

Great, thanks guys, just what I wanted to see, it's not just mine.

I'll try a query to Planet Computers.

The Cosmo doesn't support auto-rotate. The intention is to force apps to Landscape so you can use it like a mini-laptop.

I use Rotation Control Pro, which lets me select rotation on an App-specific basis. I set apps that perform better (or at all) in Portrait to automatically open in Portrait. It's a little clunky but works for me.

I used Macdroid to create a drawer shortcut to a Macro using Force Screen Rotate for each of Portrait and Landscape mode. This works great for me Andi don't have to find 3 fingers any more.

I use Portrait mode a lot - Agenda and Airmail are Landscapers though.

...because some Android Apps just hate landscape mode, and the only way to use them efficiently is to use portrait. Same for some sites. As soon as they see amobile device, they serve up a mobile version which is optimised for portrait screens.

For websites that give you mobile versions (optimized for portrait) I get most "stable" "non-mobile" versions with the Opera browser with "desktop version " turned on in settings (and Vivaldi now starts to get there too...). So a lot of the time you might get around that "problem".

There are some apps that refuse to work in landscape, and a few more that works poorly, but unless it's the only app for that "function" we should try and find alternatives that DO work in landscape as well...
