The automatic screen rotation feature of iOS can be surprising when you do activities where landscape orientation will offer a better reading or observation experience, but there are some cases where it becomes more headache than its value.
If you are a Chronic Rotation Lock user because you think the iOS auto rotate feature needs to be improved, we have a feeling you will appreciate the recently released jailbreak settings. I am LingDownDamnit by iOS developer CardboardFace.
I am ‘mLyingDownDamnit revitalizing iOS auto rotate feature with interactive buttons that help you choose the best state for your current viewing situation. As you will notice in the screenshot above, the setting identifies when your phone is ready to rotate the screen and then allows you to choose the ideal display mode for your conditions.
If you touch the “Lie Down?” Button, the screen of your cell phone will not rotate regardless of sliding 90 degrees on each side. After changing his position, I wonder what happened. Whether you just roll over or start to sit / stand, changing the correct button that appears ensures the expected rotation behavior every time.
I ‘mLyingDownDamnit is very configurable. You'll find a special preferences panel to adjust in your Settings app after installation:
Here you can:
- Toggle MyDyingDownDamDit on or off when prompted
- See the tutorial on how to adjust
- Show shooting options
- Show alerts in settings app settings
- Configure special automation
- Configure the appearance of special pop-ups
- Move UI
- Hide the UI by tapping anywhere outside it
- Lock the app in portrait mode
- Force user interface to appear when recovering your device
- Force user interface to appear when switching applications
- Force the user interface to appear in the non-playable interface
- Blacklisting certain applications that don't work with I’m LyingDownDamnit
- Show rotation animation
- Unlock the orientation of the application
In the expandable panel, you can:
- Choose between light or dark themes
- Enable or disable haptic feedback
- Set up fade delay
- Set up special space from the top of the screen
- And more …
The developer includes a blue Apply button at the top right of the main preferences panel interface, and this should be used every time you make configuration changes to make sure they are valid.
