SBRotator recently received an update for iOS4, and that's made it a lot better. I can almost take back everything I said in my previous post.

The default settings have been made far less stupid; the iPod homescreen actually rotates at a normal speed (0.4 seconds), and the general animation looks a lot better too. You can finally shrink your apps, so they're not all piled on top of each other. And there's no more crashing every 5 minutes. Obviously, a big improvement.

Additionally, the new SBRotator rotates the App Store, the Settings app, and a couple of other native apps in addition to your homescreen. It also lets you lock the rotation of your screen when you need to.

However, SBRotator is incompatible with any app that changes the number of icons on the homescreen on your jailbroken device (e.g. Iconoclasm, Five Column Springboard). It's an annoying incompatibility.

But to sum things up, this might actually be worth getting now.

This app is a piece of junk. I added it to AlternativeTo just so I could tell everybody how much of a piece of junk this is.

The default settings for SBRotator are terrible- the rotate animation is slow and clunky, your wallpaper barely covers half the screen, and the layout of your apps looks like crap. You have to do a lot of tweaking in the settings before the effect is acceptable. As of now, iOS4 doesn't support the shrinking feature of SBRotator, so apps are stacked on top of each other, which makes the landscape mode look pretty bad. Plus, this app crashes a couple times a day, which means you have to constantly respring.

Don't get it.
