PLToggle (26-01-2010) (PPC Application)

PLToggle is a small app that toggles the display orientation back and forth to the rotation of your choice, without the need for the G-Sensor.


Removed the long_send link that was originally being installed in the Windows folder.
For some reason, when you press the call button to answer a call, it executes the long_send link, despite only being a quick send.
This only happens when there’s an incoming call. I’ve removed this link from the installer, but you still execute the toggle with a long-hold of the call button.
NOTE: The installer will remove the long_send link from your windows folder.
