It would be nice if alien dalvik and Sailfish itself could be locked in portrait mode with an option. I like reading in bed and there i dont want to read sideways, but also like I would be standing

This is VERY needed. I don't understand why more people don't vote for this feature.

The setting should work since around Vaarainjärvi update also for Alien Dalvik.

Additionally, on dynamic orientation mode, you can hold a finger anywhere on the screen while turning the phone to prevent the change between portrait and landscape. Pretty useful extra feature especially for reading in bed

Such feature should not be achieved with an app, it has been available on higher SailfishOS versions for a while.

Go to the AndroidSettings and add lock the rotation. AlienDalvikControl from OpenRepos is the shortest way.
