Your favorite book. Now more comfortable.
You love the 11" MacBook Air because it has a keyboard. Now you'll love it because it can be a great reader too! Use your MacBook Air in portrait mode with your favorite e-reader or browser while holding it like a book. With Screen Rotate you can work AND relax with your MacBook Air or MacBook.

This application rotates the widescreen format of your display to the left or right for portrait viewing with a small, three button window that appears in the lower lefthand corner of the screen.

Your feedback is appreciated.

Good news! The persistent graphics driver related issue that has been around since Mac OS X 10.7.3 has finally been resolved with OS X 10.8.2 (12C60).

This glitch prevented the highest resolution (768 x 1366) from being displayed in portrait mode on the 11" Air.

Please check your operating system version prior to purchasing. Please refer to our support page for additional information.

“Your screen rotate app is insane!!! Have been looking for this a long time. Makes me miss my ipad less ;)”- Rob B.

“App is very cool. I was really impressed.”- Bryan W.

"Firstly, thanks for a great app at a great price. It's so much better than the other options I've tried." - Martin H.

"Wow,Wow and Wow again! I downloaded the trial version on my new 11" Air, downloaded the Kindle App, and I am in Reader's Nirvana. I don't know of many $4.99 apps that deliver this well. I encourage every Macbook Air (especially the 11") owner to purchase this app. " - Larry P.

Review by DanielBMusic

Huge step forward! - I'm a musician and this will facilitate getting off of paper charts at gigs..., WOW! The app works as described, is simple, elegant and seems very solid. It is essential that not only does the screen rotate, but the trackpad does too, so you can navigate when the computer is turned on its side. The panel that someone complained about in the reviews is small and out of the way and, of course, useful. Maybe some more bells and whistles, shortcuts, etc could be added down the road, but to me those are secondary to having this functionality available and well implemented. Worth every penny of $5, I've actually considered getting an iPad just for this ability. Glad I didn't!! Oh, and it DOES support trackpad gestures…

No shortcut, No menu bar support - Stupid pannel stays on the screen no matter what you do. Developer should show the least of concern. It is a shame that there are no alternatives, and I am using it. Literally I HATE this little pannel.

Review by 73H_JU571N

Does what it says, but... - Would be much more useful if it put an icon in the menu bar, than take up all the space on the dock. I was hoping I could use it to rotate my macbook's display, so I could mount it up next to my cinema display and have the 27" and keep the macbook as a vertical secondary. This app only rotates the main display (the one with the menu bar, not necessarily the one with the dock). I was a little disappointed in that, but I'm hopeful these features might be added in the future.

Love this! - As a guy who hates paper, I love this app! So awesome to read on my Kindle app holding my Mac like a book. I have an old book-style looking cover for my Macbook Air, and I used this app to read my notes as I officated a wedding! The app runs so smooth and I've had no issues with it…love it!

Review by zpowerla

APP IS FOR READERS ONLY! NOT FOR SOFTWARE INTERATCTION... - SEEKING A SHORTCUT FOR THE OS SCREEN ROTATION? THIS APP IS NOT IT AS "SCREEN ROTATE" DOES NOT ALSO CONFIGURE POINTER FOR USE WITH ANY SOFTWARE (YOUR MOUSE WILL BE USELESS). SELLER, KINDLY MAKE THIS MORE OBVIOUS IN THE MARKETING. FOR READERS ONLY IT WILL WORK WELL.
