- In case of bugs/issues, please contact me via email before making any review.

- Some apps might not work properly when forced to work in certain orientations. Use Auto-Rotate on/off from Apps conditions to use system settings for those apps.

- Android Oreo (8.0+) does not allow any third-party apps on the lock screen. So, Rotation will not work if the device is in the locked state.

- Reverse Portrait is disabled on some Xiaomi (MIUI) devices with default launcher. Please try any other launcher (home screen) to make it work.
