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!

Dont forget - im looking for suggestions, so please think what the app is missing and let me know wither through the app or by writing here. Thanks in advance

Weve actually done a lot of testing on this device, but suggestions are very welcome and of course we havent tried it on all the roms

This maybe usefull for devices with a strange acting displays (ex. my Nexus some time) or devices with a small border.

BUT whats the benefit for my Transformer?

I mean i got a HUGE frame to hold it in tab only mode, and dock for watching movies and text stuff.

I have some suggestions.
  • It would be nice if it could switch between landscape and portrait mode. Because my bars are too small in portrait mode.
  • I had some problems with cropping the size of the blocked area. You might want to improve the area where you have to touch or give an indicator what exactly the user has to do.

I like the idea. However it would be cooler if would be intelligent like the XOOM 2. Which can tell the difference between a finger and the palm. Especially because I have all my icons on the side of the screen.

It's great when you have a 10 month old baby watching Elmo's World in the car who likes to grab the screen every 3 seconds and keep backing out of DICE player!
