    I just submitted an idea to make rotation lock easily accessible at any time, just like silent/ring button, it may also work for wiFi or brightness control too! . If you like the idea, help me voting it up! :) :

    Make Rotation Lock available from the pop-down volume

    I would be willing to bet they are already working on it.

    I would prefer to push and hold on the screen while rotating the phone. It would know you want to hold the image and not auto-rotate. Very simple.

    Hooking into phone settings from the volume slide down, or any other parts of the phone other than app tiles is only something Microsoft can make. Developers can only make use of the APIs available to them, and in this respect the closest you can get is a pinnable tile to take you to the setting for screen rotation. I have submitted an app to do this, for 9 phone settings including screen rotation. This is actually all settings that are available to developers. I will let you know when its in the store.

    Other platforms have this.

    Personally i think it looks ugly, it would offend me looking at this on the volume bar, but i suspect at some point they'll copy everyone else :(

    My free app is now in the Store: Settings To-Go, Link: Settings To-Go | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States).

    It allows quick access to all setting that are exposed by the Windows Phone OS.
