[Poll] Best Screen Rotation App

I may be alone on this, but it seems like a good idea to have a nice consolodated thread on all of the best screen rotation apps. I am looking for the best app in terms mainly of speed, but alos stability and ease of use. Please vote in the poll, and post a reply on how you voted and what your reasoning is. Thank you

Re: [Poll] Best Screen Rotation App

when i had my diamond i found that the easiest and less headache worth rotation was to program the long press home button to the Stock Rotation setting. but thats just me.

For those that don't know:

HKLM>system>GDI>Rotation>HideOrientationUI ->set to 0

after that, rotate screen will show up as an option in the button remap dialog.

Re: [Poll] Best Screen Rotation App

Stock rotation is pretty foolproof. I like flipit as well, pretty solid and haven't run into any problems using it myself.

Re: [Poll] Best Screen Rotation App

change screen is pretty nice. Lets u see the name of any apps u have running to u can set how u want them to rotate. It also has some extra features like auto screen off when u put it upside down or face down.

By stability i just mean it being reliable. I have had bad experiences with one or two apps locking up on me and not rotating reliably.
