Automatic Screen Rotation On N82
As many of you have heard the Nokia N82 has Automatic Screen Rotation using the accelerometer. Here is a video that I recorded to show how the Automatic Screen Rotation works with different applications. Sorry the camera isn't focussed very well on the N82's screen but you can still see the applications fairly well.
The Automatic Screen Rotation works with most applications, including 3rd party applications, on the N82. However some applications were designed to work in a certain screen orientation, such as Camera related applications designed to work in Landscape, Automatic Screen Rotation will not work with these applications. For those of you that are wondering what features and applications don't support Automatic Screen Rotation, I've compiled a list.
Below is the list of applications that do not support Automatic Screen Rotation:
- Idle Screen
- Main Camera (5 Megapixel camera) and Front Camera
- Video Call
- N-gage Games
- Barcode Reader
- Snake game
- Phone calls
- Video Center
If I missed any please let me know in the comments.
Also if you decide you want to turn off the Automatic Screen Rotation you can do so in General Settings. The setting is available in Settings -> General -> Personalisation -> Display -> Rotate screen, change it from Automatic to Off and the screen will no longer rotate.
