[APP] Rotation Locker v1.4 - Landscape & Portrait lock

I wrote this app to allow a user to lock the screen rotation in landscape, portrait or auto. The app is very simple, when you click on it, you're faced with these three options. Long press on Landscape if you want the app to run as a background service (only use this if landscape mode terminates on its own).
I searched on the Market for an app that would lock the screen in landscape mode and found only one paid app that does it but actually runs a service continuously in the background regardless of the orientation mode. This app is free and the background service is optional
so without further ado . .
