    Hey guys

    I am sure a lot of people want this too. I am hoping somone can make an app to disable the accelerometer in programs like safari and the music player.

    It gets quite frustrating when the screen keeps turning on me while trying to view a web page lying down.

    yes yes yes, i follow you for this. UpUp

    Especially in Safari, i always like to lie down to use this, but the accelerameter always doesn't let me do that.

    I totally agree. It's especially annoying when I try to lie sideways.

    I am glad to see there is some need for this app. Let's hope a developer will be kind enough to create it.

    Don't take my word on this, but I think the accelerometer is hardware. I'll wiki it and get back to you
