During my impressions with Android P after more than a month of use , I realized that the latest version, despite being still at a very early stage of its development, is full of small details that make using Android a much more satisfying experience. One of the most useful details, and of which, I am very afraid that I could no longer separate myself, is manual screen rotation .
This option, perfect for those who, like me, keep the automatic rotation function off, consists of a small button that appears in the virtual navigation bar of the device as soon as the user rotates the terminal, and by clicking on it, the content of the screen rotates to fit the format . Although it may seem somewhat confusing, in the GIF below these lines you can see its operation in more detail.
The problem is that today only the owners of a Pixel terminal can enjoy this option , and most likely, many users do not receive the latest version of Android until next year 2019, which means that the vast majority still have to wait half a year without being able to enjoy this useful feature … Luckily, You can go ahead and start using this option on your mobile, regardless of the version of Android that you run. Do you want to know how?
As indicated from XDA-Developers , to take this option to any Android smartphone There are two different methods, although this time we will focus on the one that seems most convenient when emulating the rotation suggestion of Android P, besides being totally free .
For this, we need to download the application Dynamic Rotation Control , available for free on Google Play. According to its own creator, it is a small tool that, once installed, creates a service in the system that is responsible for monitoring the orientation of the phone, and once the rotation reaches 90 degrees, a button will appear that allows rotate the contents of the screen manually.
Once the application is installed, it will be enough to grant permission to “Write about other applications” . Once this is done, the app offers the possibility of changing parameters such as the sensitivity of the rotation or the size of the button that will appear on the screen.
When the application is configured correctly, when turning the device we will see how a button of the size that we have configured appears, and when clicking on it, the contents of the screen will rotate to fit the format . On the other hand, if we do not click, the content will keep its original form. It is necessary to comment, that yes, that to be able to use the application it is necessary to keep the automatic rotation disabled.
