    I found apps designed for iPhone does not rotate on my iPad3 running ios 6.1.3, jailbroken.
    To use an iphone app when charging, I end up squeezing the cable on the bottom.
    Is there any tweak that can rotate iPhone app on iPad?

    iPhone apps can only be played on portrait or landscape mode according to the way they are developed. Actually, its the same for iPad apps. Its the developers choice whether you play in portrait or landscape orientation.

    Thanks for your reply. I put things awkwardly and led you to misunderstand. I'm just trying to run portrait mode iphone apps
    to be in a portrait mode without being upsidedown
    when I rotate the device (and when the home button is on the top!)

    From Settings > General > use side switch to :

    IF IT IS SET TO MUTE : perform an upward swipe from the bottom of the screen to bring up the control centre. The last button, in this case will be to toggle lock rotation. If it is enabled (highlighted white) switch it off and the app should rotate.

    IF IT IS SET TO LOCK ROTATION : The side switch of the iPad should be toggled and switched off. Then, it should rotate.

    If neither works, you can try a hard reset of the iPad. Press and hold the power and home button for 10-20 seconds until Apple logo appears. You will not loose any data or settings.

    Another thing you could try before hard reset is force closing the app. Perform a four finger upward swipe to reveal the multitasking toolbar. Perform a single finger upward swipe to force close the required app.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    BTW, did you know you posted the thread in the wrong section of the forum? Its nothing related to hacking...

    Well we can certainly fix that by simply moving the thread to the "Help" Section.

    Simple mistake...Simple Resolution. :)

    I know exactly what you're talking about! If I have to be plugged in while in portrait mode then I always go upside down. Maybe someone else can jump in, but I have yet to figure out how to make the iPhone apps go right-side up when I rotate the iPad upside down. iMore has the best iPhone app I've seen for use on the iPad because it will rotate to landscape mode. But, even that one won't rotate in portrait mode. :(

    Thanks abababababab for your kind advise.
    Unfortunately, turning off the rotation lock does not seem to have effect...@.@

    And I posted this issue to be advised with tweaks in fact...:p
    I think I have to change the title maybe?

    So your iPad is jailbroken than? Your question and title does not appear that way.

    Anyways...It's back to the original section.
