auto-rotate seems to have changed, it now defaults to the last orientation an application had since last used. so opening it again would disregard the current orientation. for example, if an app was last used on landscape and you hold the phone the normal way (not landscape), when I open the app, it would be on landscape orientation and I would need to shake it just to have it corrected. this is not good specially on browsing the internet, or the facebook app, or the gallery. not sure what other apps are affected. any way to turn this back the way 2.1 auto-rotate works?
I'm fairly new to android development - I'm having trouble finding documentation on how to disable the accelerometer/auto-rotate feature for an app (i.e. when you turn the phone, everything 'corrects' changing the layout). Is it possible to disable in the emulator?
I have been playing around with Timeriffic (great app!) and wondered if anyone knows if there is a way to have Auto Rotate of screen to not be enabled say, from 23:00 until 7:00?Even a separate (freeware) app would be okay as I don't see Timeriffic doing this? PS - Is there a way to save/export timeriffic settings/personal saved options?
Sometimes the screen auto-rotates when I don't want it to if I angle the phone slightly. I am constantly toggling it on and off. To do so of course, I have to go into settings, then display. Does anyone know of an app that I can add the toggle switch as a shortcut on my desktop? It is kind of a pain to go through the settings each and every time. I would much rather just hit it easily on my homescreen.
I'm having problems with my auto rotate. I use launcher pro, and have the homescreens set to not rotate. This always left my apps (handcent, gmail, etc) free to rotate within the app or popup now I only get one or the other if auto rotate is on, apps are stuck in landscape, and vice versa Ive deleted LP and started over, gone into recovery and wiped cache, battery pull running out of ideas?
Not sure if this is the right section to ask but,is there a way to turn on auto rotate in google maps? As an example, if i lay down the phone and point it north, the map should point nort. But if i would to rotate the phone, the map should be facing the same direction.
I kinda liked the fact that the old system only rotated when put on one side. I didn't realize that I counted on the screen orientation to stay the way when it was leaned the other direction. But I do like to type with the unit on its side from time to time.Is it possible to switch it back to the way it used to be (pre 2.2)? I saw an on/off for the entire rotation, so I doubt it but felt it worth asking.
today i bought Point of View ProTab 25 Tablet. last night i read this thread "[ROM] Point Of View Protab 25 with root" and today i brought it home and every thing were working just fine. so i decided to root it by following the steps in the previous thread, so i flash it with the uploaded firmware, and after it finished, the device become very slow and the "auto rotate" didn't work.. so i flash it back with a firmware that i installed from: Point of View official website and now camera stop working..
I am using Go Launcher on Galaxy Note and it appears to redraw/reload all widgets and icons on the home screen if I rotate the screen i.e while going from Landscape to Potrait Mode and vice versa , all widgets/icons reload.
While rotating applications , this does not happen.
I've checked the "orientation" box in the "sound and display" settings menu, but the Home and Menu screens will not auto-orient when my X10 mini pro is rotated. It only works when the keyboard is slid open - applications don't seem to have this problem. This is a recent issue, probably in the last couple of days. i've tried reinstalling the software via PC Companion and SEUS, in addition to a "factory reset," but they haven't solved anything. Is there something wrong with the accelerometer or is it a software issue that can be resolved with the next software update (2.1)?
MotoDroid 2.2. Since 2.2, the auto-rotate screen goes haywire from time to time. I normally use the vertical format, easier to type, but when it switches, not much screen left, and I have to go back and back to start over again.
I just bought the Nexus One unlocked for AT&T and really like it. 1 wierd thing is that when I rotate the phone counter clockwise, the screen goes to landscape just fine; but when I rotate it clockwise it does not go to landscape "the other way". And, if I'm holding the phone 'normally' and rotate it 180 degrees ('upside down') it doesn't follow.My youngest daughter delights in telling me that her iPhone does this with no problem. What's up with that?
Just got my lovely new phone today but I can't get all the screens to rotate.The box that says 'Auto-rotate screen' is checked but, on some screens, nothing's happening.What am I doing wrong? Or does it only do it on certain screens?
I have a HTC Magic (Rogers Canada).And, I see how the Dream (G1) rotates the home screen. can the Magic do that as well? Also, anybody know if it's possible to rotate the screen to the right and not just to the left? Shouldn't the acceleromater detect all the different rotated modes (even upside down?). that'd be cool
As we know, we can rotate a bitmap through 2 ways. The 1st way is: Matrix mt = new Matrix(); mt. postRotate (degree);Bitmap bitmap = CreateBitmap(src, 0, 0, w, h, mt, true); canvs.drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, paint); In this way, we always need create new bitmap for every rotation, it is not good way for high performance game or app.The 2nd way is: canvas.save(); canvas.rotate(degree); canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, paint); canvas.restore();In this way, we avoid creating new bitmap frequently, but the rotation bitmap is distortion, the bitmap quality is worse than first way.So, Is there 3rd way to rotate bitmap with high performance and good quality? Your any comments are really appreciated!
I mentioned this in another post that was unrelated but got no answers, sorry if someone mentioned it elsewhere but Ive looked through em pretty good.I noticed while changing settings and surfing, 3 times now, Ive had a lil window pop-up saying "12 apps closed". Im not rooted, using the RC, no ATK running or anything. Kinda curious if this could be part of whats causing battery issues? Yes its a long shot I know, but is anyone aware of this and/or is it possible to disable?
*Yes I seen Froyo was supposed to handle closing app differently, more so looking for a way to disable this, and if need be manually use an ATK type program as needed to get my battery life back to anything near what it was.
My Desire; which i have had problem free for 3 months; has just developed a problem with the screen rotation. Initially it wouldn't rotate so i checked that it was set to automatically rotate in the screen and display menu which it was .
I then tried to recalibrate the screen which kind of worked in that it now allows the screen to rotate to landscape if held sideways, but when i put it the right way up, the screen stays landscape.
I have Swype which i thought might be interfering so i removed the program and rebooted but still nothing.
