Unofficial G1 auto-rotation in the works

Chris Ziegler

The G1's got its fair share of accelerometers -- one need only pop open compass mode in Street View to figure that out -- but one thing it doesn't have is screen auto-rotation. That's where the ever-vigilant developer community comes into play, and Google's all's-fair policy toward third-party apps should guarantee that this nifty little hack will be readily available to anyone who wants it. Follow the break to see the keyboardless magic in action (hint: it works pretty much how you'd expect it to).
