Lightbulb [APP] Touch Blocker - makes holding your device easier when reading [HC/ICS ONLY]

Touch Blocker Beta - a simple but useful app that makes holding and using your device easier

There are two basic functions:

Quote:
- create dead zones where touches do not register
- filter the screen when reading in low light
We are already in a relatively stable Beta release - whats left now is adding new features and making it all look pretty. You can follow this process at the thread here.

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

Suggestions under consideration:

- fullscreen touch disable (shake to enable disable?)
- shake to show/hide or enable/disable

Great idea!!! Any reason why only honeycomb and ice cream sandwich? Not that it matters, this will be very useful on tablets

Thank you!

Why only ICS and HC? Because it doesnt work with multitouch in versions of android before 3.0!

Suggestion:
Add an option to show the active dead zone with maybe a semitransparent background

You can already do this using the editor... or do you mean add an option to always display the deadzones (in a very transparent way)?
