Tired of looking at your iPhone home screen in portrait mode? If you’ve got a jailbroken iPhone you don’t have to. There’s a new app in the Cydia store called SBRotator that lets you view your home screen in portrait mode. You can also use the utility to view apps that are normally only available in portrait mode in landscape mode, including iTunes and the App Store.

There are also a ton of tweaks you can apply, including changing the layout of the home screen, the size of the icons, and support for widening folders. Bear in mind, not all apps look great in landscape mode. The phone dialer, for instance, looks kind of awful.

You can check out a demo video of SBRotator after the break.
