Great idea! It seems every time I hand my phone to someone to look at or take a picture, the display will change and they'll say "what happened?". I'll give this app a try.

Is anyone even interested in this app?

Maybe it needs more features?

I am interested in it. I'm trying out the free version (before I buy) but I notice somethings. Maybe its just me but when I watch a movie on the default player on my Evo4G, after tapping on the screen a few times, the lock disables. I can skip through the entire movie and even get out. I'm going to try it with a different player later today.

A few suggestions,
1) It would be nice if the toggle button changed (ex. inverted colors) because when I had the movie problem, I couldn't tell if it was locked or unlocked.
2) Is it possible we can change the location of the toggle button, at least like different corners because it's too close to the home button when in landscape.

One final note, when its locked, you can still drag down the notification bar. So far its looking pretty good. Let me know if I'm doing something wrong since I've only been playing with it for about 30 minutes. Thanks.

Man, this is just what I was looking for ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1431037 ). Super!

I want it for e-reading in kindle or aldiko. Tested so far briefly on Galaxy Tab 8.9 (android 3.2) and an HTC Desire (2.3.3) ... Just fine so far.

I first tried Screen Tools 2, but that one messed up the use of volume buttons for page flipping in both kindle and aldiko.


it took me a while to understand some of the options, like the meaning of "auto on toggle". Also, the toggle app shortcut only works as "on switch" for me... With touch screen disabled, the toggle can't be used to deactivate.

It also took me a while to figure out how to unlock (the use of the tiny toggle button is not documented in the settings or anywhere)
EDIT: I realize now this is what's meant by onscreen button in the settings

The option to leave the edge active is also great, although I will probably opt to switch pages with volume buttons.
EDIT: swiping pages this way works well on the tablet, but is hit and miss on the phone. The edge size may need to be user selectable?


I second the idea to color code the tiny toggle.

Great work.

EDIT: I was searching (Google) for a long time using keywords like "disable touch screen" (all about turning screen off) and "disable touch sensitivity" with no results... Until I found screen tools 2, and then very accidentally this one. :)

Extra feature idea....
disable touch sensitivity along the edge only, keeping sensitivity on the center

Use case: I need something that allows me to hold the tablet a bit more firmly, in one hand, which means putting my thumb in the screen just a bit.

Sure, we're interested! I installed the app but have not yet had a chance to use it.

I can add the feature to block edges only, but there is an app called grip it which does just that.

And yes, I should probably use the icon for the status + maybe done kind of animation to tell you when toy unlock vs lock the screen.
