Rotation Inhibitor is a toggle for SBSettings (I seriously love SBSettings…sorry, tangent). The toggle allows you to turn on/off the auto-rotate feature. This includes the auto-rotating in Safari, iPod or anything else that changes orientation when you turn your iPhone or iPod Touch. I was SUPER excited when I saw this toggle in Cydia. I don’t know about you but, when I am laying in bed and surfing the web (you know you do it!), it is so annoying when my iPhone switches to landscape mode (or continues to rotate between portrait and landscape mode!). Anyway, once you install the application, you will then need to go into SBSettings and make sure that it is activated. If it doesn’t automatically show up, you will need to go into the More option in SBSettings and then the Set Toggles option and turn on Rotation.
If you want to stop the auto-rotating, you need to toggle the Rotation feature off. To get your auto-rotate back, toggle the Rotation option on. I am having a few issues with this app…whether it is a bug or just personal preference I don’t know! I have found that you cannot just toggle the Rotation feature off and have it stop all auto-rotating. You have to actually be in the application and then toggle the Rotation option. For example, if you want to stop auto-rotating in Safari, you have to open Safari and then open SBSetttings and toggle the Rotation option. If you then went into iPod…it would still auto-rotate until you open SBSetting and toggle the Rotation feature again. Personally, I just want to toggle the Rotation option from my SpringBoard and have it turn off all auto-rotating but, that is just personal preference!
