It is obviously that the autorotation feature on Android has its advanatges, but let’s admit that sometimes toggling the auto-rotation from your phone’s Settings » display page is more than frustrating.

It is true that there are manufacturers that can provide an auto-rotate toggle in the notification which is need a better option compared to going through the Settings page, but we have other suggestions when it comes to easily managing the Auto-Rotation on Android.

So, if unnecessary rotation usually distracts you and interrupt your from your activities, it’s time to take action and change that!

How to easily manage Auto-Rotation on Android:

1. If you simply want to turn auto rotate off, then all you have to do is to navigate to settings > display. There you’ll find a tick box to turn auto rotate on and off and this will prevent the majority of apps from auto rotating;

2. Many handsets now provide a toggle which can be placed on your homescreen for turning auto rotate on and off. But you probably now that the stock Android OS doesn’t come with this option, so there are certain handsets like the Nexus series which don’t have such a feature. However, there are various apps in the Play store that give you the chance to put toggles for several device settings in the notification bar and some of the most popular ones are Widgetsoid or Notification toggle;

3. Use other apps such as:
