    The only time I'm ever using my iPhone in landscape is when I'm watching videos on it. I would rather not have to deactivate the orientation lock every time I want to watch a video. Is there a tweak that does this? (please don't suggest ways of quickly toggling the orientation lock, it's not what I'm looking for)

    I thought you had the solution ,the way the thread title was put

    I always keep my phone lock in portrait mode & when i play videos there in landscape

    Other times i have to unlock portrait mode cause the videos show up portrait

    I dont know how this works

    Yeah that's what's annoying, when they show up in portrait.

    Great idea for a tweak. I always keep my phone locked to portrait. But like you guys, when I go to play a video, 8 out of every 10 are supposed to be viewed in landscape! Obviously you gotta pause the video, then either access the task switcher, swipe over and unlock orientation or access sbsettings/ncsettings for a toggle.

    Great idea for a tweak.

    I'll suggest it to a dev that's always asking for tweak ideas on twitter
