Today there was an update to Rotation Inhibitor, a SBSetting add-on toggle that allows you to turn of the auto-rotate feature on your iPhone or iPod Touch. The update does a few pretty cool things. It adds the Rotation icon for all the default SBSetting’s themes (which is nice!), it fixes a bug in which the keyboard was not working properly in apps that set their “keyboard orientation manually” and it made the app open-source. It update also added a new feature to the toggle that allows you to set which rotation orientation you would like to turn on.
When you tap and hold the toggle (within SBSettings) you will notice a little pop-up at the bottom of the screen with one of four options displayed; Landscape Right, Landscape Left, Portrait and Portrait Upside Down. This allows you to choose which orientation you would like your iPhone or iPod Touch to stay on. So, lets say you turn off the rotation toggle (which will turn off the auto-rotate feature) and then you choose Portrait. That means that everything will be displayed in portrait view…and will not rotate out of portrait view. If you select Landscape Right everything will display in landscape view in which you have to turn your device to the right in order to read it…and it will not rotate out of that view.
