As is of­ten the case with up­com­ing An­droid fea­tures, an app ded­i­cated to a spe­cific func­tion will no doubt find its way to the Google Play Store ahead of the next ma­jor ver­sion re­lease. This is great for users who wouldn’t have got­ten the fea­ture any­time soon, but there’s a good chance that the app de­signer won’t quite do as a good job as Google. As this app’s name im­plies, the fea­ture it’s mim­ick­ing is a ro­ta­tion trick found in An­droid Pie. In­stead of a phone that’s locked to ei­ther por­trait or land­scape, or one that au­to­mat­i­cally changes its dis­play ori­en­ta­tion with the hand­set, this func­tion of­fers a happy medium. Flip the phone and a small icon will briefly dis­play — tap to change the ori­en­ta­tion or ig­nore it and it goes away. The fea­ture is ge­nius for avoid­ing ac­ci­den­tal shifts, but this app is flaky and in­ter­mit­tently dis­ables the func­tion.
