Touch Blocker

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!

Good Very useful for underwater pictures to avoid crazy screen usage and use the volume buttons as a shutter. If you use android lollipop make sure the app has enough permissions.

Visible lines make app useless Visible lines shown in the touch disabled area (s) interfere with watching a movie or reading a book. Pretty lame to go out of your way to add a feature that renders your app unuseable.

**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!!
