RotateMe 2.0 for Nokia 95. Landscape/Portrait switching with motion sensor

One cool thing about iPhone and iPod Touch is how it changes automatically between landscape and portrait modes, depending on how you hold the device.

Why can’t I have this cool feature on my Nokia N95? It’s really annoying to switch between landscape and portrait modes while browsing the Net or my picture gallery.

Well, now it seems that this problem will be solved soon with the help of French developer By Samir and his cool freeware app rotateMe v2. Check out this video demo (only in French, unfortunately):

rotateMe application has already been around for a while and, in an unsigned version, is available for Nokia N80 and N73 devices. But it will soon get better with a version 2.

As you can see in video demo, rotateMe 2 is taking advantage in the little advertised feature of Nokia N95 – a motion sensor used by the camera. This motion sensor can be used as an accelerometer to detect orientation of the device and automagically switch between landscape and portrait modes.

rotateMe 2 for Nokia N95 should become available this November.

    @PC Master: Your Pocket PC have to have an Accelerometer build in, like the N95 and the iPhone has. Its a hardware thing.
