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

There are two basic functions:

- 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

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)?

I've just downloaded this and I don't have any problems so far.
Maybe you can place some tiny icon somewhere on the screen so people can easily disable it? Idk, but I think not everyone will be pleased with this suggestion. :D

You can use the notification - it has various actions you can pick. The trouble with always using an overlay (to make your button) is that it will slow things down...

Anything else to report?

Sent from my GT-P7500 using xda premium
I really like it. Works well when holding my Galaxy Nexus!

However, the screen filter (which is a great feature) makes everything lag on my phone.

I wonder if that's because there are too many pixels to re-render with such an HD screen? I don't know if there's any way round it!
