Mac Screen Rotate description
Mac Screen Rotate lets you read your MacBook like a book book. Rotate your screen and built-in touchpad. The app rotates your laptop’s display 90 degrees to the right or to the left allowing you to hold your laptop more naturally, like a book, with the hinge/spine oriented vertically.

What does Mac Screen Rotate do?
The app rotates your MacBook Air’s display 90 degrees to the right or to the left allowing you to hold your laptop more naturally, like a book, with the hinge/spine oriented vertically.
Simultaneously, the application rotates the touchpad tracking allowing you to conveniently move the pointer with your thumb.
This all happens with keyboard shortcuts. Motion sensors are not used.

Why would I want to rotate my display?
We’ve found portrait orientation enabled by Mac Screen Rotate is great for using some of our favorite reading and browsing applications like Amazon’s Kindle and Safari’s Reader. Mac Screen Rotate is also great for reviewing and editing documents and spreadsheets since you can see much more of the page. We think that you will be amazed by the difference that a tall skinny screen makes compared to a short wide one for certain activities. It is great for reading blog posts and browsing the internet. The benefits of relaxing in your chair instead of hunching over you laptop cannot be overstated.

Keyboard Shortcuts:
Rotate Left (enables touchpad control with left hand): command + fn + F6
Rotate Right (enables touchpad control with right hand): command + fn + F8
Rotate Standard: command + fn + F7

Supported Hardware:
Mac Screen Rotate was originally conceived with the 11.6” MacBook Air in mind. The widescreen orientation and lightweight of this model (or the 13” MacBook Air for that matter) really lends itself to being held like a book. That being said, we have users that love the app for their 13” MacBook Pros as well. If you’ve got a 15” or 17” MacBook this probably isn’t of much benefit to you as the size and weight of those models is probably a bit cumbersome to hold like a book. We really can’t think of a use for this app for desktop users, but if you think of one we’d love to hear about it.

Warning: This application may NOT work properly on 2011 MacBook Pros with Thunderbolt and Intel HD Graphics 3000 or AMD Radeon HD graphics cards. Please check your graphics card using "About This Mac" before downloading.

Limitations: 7-day trial.

Requirements:
OS X 10.6+
Works best with 2010 or newer MacBook Airs and 13" MacBook Pros.

Intel Required
