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