Touch Blocker


Touch Blocker is a simple but useful app that makes holding and using your device easier. There are two basic functions - it can create dead zones where touches do not register and also filter the screen when reading in low light. For those who have kids, the first tool is indispensable.

Both functions can be controlled via device shake, notification or widget. You can create your own custom zones or use predefined ones.

This is a stable Beta release. You can follow its progress at the XDA thread here: http://goo.gl/Tilmj

Please be sure to write with suggestions - we are looking forward to engaging the community and building a useful and nifty application that many will enjoy!

**Didn't work AT ALL!** (+ then wants $$)?? . . The touch screen block setting does not work at all on my HTC One...... (Even if it did, you have to pay for it to block the whole screen... Uh, NOooo thanks; there's *free* apps that actually DO work & block the WHOLE screen). Uninstalled!!

Very low useability I bought the app. Totally not worth it. I wrote to the author and there has been no reply so poor support. Also, it also says in the description of the basic app: "You can create your own custom zones or use predefined ones." that is not precisely true. You can not create you own custom zones to block but you can turn on and off sections of the pre-defined zones. So that is pretty lame. Its a waste of time and money.

Lines of the overlay? Why are the lines visible when activated? Even in paid version. Would love to change rating higher. Tasker integration would also be great.
