If you are like me and go NUTS from the keyboard continually popping up when you are writing and your wrist hits the screen I have a recommendation.

It is called "Invisible Grip" and can be enabled or disabled from the Notification Bar.

What it does is allow you to disable the edges of your screen. If you disable just the bottom when you are writing in Notes this means no more annoying keyboard popups! Yay!

You need the pro version to enable just the bottom and adjust the size. Only a buck so totally worth it.

You could also try an app called Screen Filter.

How does Screen Filter do what this does?

Yikes! Teach me to post while I'm too sore to see straight. The app I meant to mention is Touch Blocker. Still in beta but available here at XDA. Apologies for mentioning the completely wrong app.
