    I was wondering if there is any app out there that can disable the auto-rotate feature in Safari.

    I ask this because I used to use a Palm TX and Dell Pocket PC to browse the web and read news in my bed. I usually read on my side and I cannot do this with Safari on the iPod Touch or it will rotate it and I have to hold it sideways.

    If this app has not be made yet, can someone with experience create a toggle option to turn the thing on and off?

    I have the same problem.
    I end up having the touch positioned with home button at the top, because the Touch doesnt rotate the screen when the home button at the highest point.

    Someone should develop a rotation app, allowing for Mail and Notes to be in landscape, along with disabling it.

    MAYBE if you scan through ALL the apps in installer.app there could be something. Im honestly not sure though.

    It's been six months since this was posted, does anyone know whether there's a solution to this problem yet? I've installed the version 2 update on my Touch but there still doesn't seem to be any way to disable the accelerometer.

    xXriderXx7: Thanks for the "home at the top" tip, it'll help in the meantime.
