What are the technical terms for

A screen that when you rotate them the image on the screen rotates (like on an ipad)?
The term for 'pinch and expand' with a touch screen to zoom in and zoom out?

Thanks pierre, somehow got the impression the word "gravity" was in the phrase.
I'm writing a technical document for a piece of software, as the software includes a 'button' to overide the "screen auto rotate" I was after the correct phrase.

Re: What are the technical terms for

Hi Journeys,
were you also looking for the answer to the second one you mentioned?  You nearly answered it yourself as I'm sure it's simply called 'pinch to zoom'.

Yes that's it.  On my Samsung galaxy it's called pinch to zoom.
