Works well.

I use this add-on mainly for the "landscape on fullscreen" feature. Would it be possible for you to add an auto-rotate to portrait feature when going back from fullscreen? That would make this add-on pefect! Edit: I forgot to mention that I use my phone mirrored to my PC using Vysor, so it doesn't automatically go to portrait when out of fullscreen unless I physically turn my phone. Edit 2: I figured it out. Disabling auto-rotate while using Vysor forces the phone back to portait when out of fullscreen. Awesome!
