Make landscape orientation work with Nexus7 home screen

By default the Nexus 7's home screen only works in portrait mode and doesn't support landscape mode. The home screen won't rotate if turned your tablet horizontally. There are also some third-party apps, like Flipboard, isn't rotating into landscape mode.

How to make landscape orientation working with home screen and android apps
* Open Google Play Store app, download and install "Ultimate Rotation Control". This app does fully control the orientation of your screen, really lock to all rotations and supports per application preferences.
* Open it and change the "Current Rotation" setting to "Auto".
* Now Return to Home screen, swipe down the notification panel. There is a "Rotate" item. Tap on it and then "Global".
