Description

Netflix usage: because many users want to use this app with Netflix, please check below for details on how to use this Touch Blocker with Netflix to prevent the movie playback from stopping as soon as you disable touch input. This video shows you how to do it: http://youtu.be/w4wixMgltLc


Touch Blocker prevents unintentional touch interaction with the touch screen of your device by blocking touch input. When you disable touch input while watching a movie you don't have to worry not to skip scenes by accidentally touching the screen. Also useful if you hand your phone to someone (e.g. to show them a picture) and don't want them to mess with the device.


Usage: Install and start Touch Blocker and select which methods you want to use to disable/enable touch interaction with your device (I would recommend enabling at least the options 'Run In Foreground' and maybe 'Disable On Triple Tap'). Setting up these options has to be done only once. Then select 'Enable' in preferences (you may also set it to be launched automatically at each reboot of your device). You can then lock the screen by clicking the notification icon. The donate version offers a even simpler way of blocking/unblocking touch input by the way of a convenient overlay icon.

If you want to use this with NETFLIX: The secret of disabling touch input for Netflix is to start blocking touch events while the Netflix app is buffering the video stream for playback. It works using any method Touch Blocker provides, but easiest and most conveniently by using the overlay icon (available after donating -- just click on it while Netflix displays 'Loading...' next to the rotating circle animation). If you also enable the Fullscreen option you can enjoy uninterrupted playback of your Netflix movies! What is currently not possible is to block touch input if the video was paused once or you used the slider to seek forward/backward. This is NOT a bug of this app, but a 'feature' of the Netflix app. The way around that is to stop the playback (the position is saved by Netflix) and then start it again. Then proceed as described above.

A thanks to the people who donated: I've added an overlay icon that gives you a simple and always availabe way to toggle the blocking function (no need to use the notification anymore). The overlay icon is hidden 3 seconds after the touch input is blocked. You can show it again by touching the screen once. Also available is a shortcut that you can place on the home screen to block touch input or that can be called by gesture control programs (like GMD) to block touch input.

More options of the donate version:

- lock the volume keys when the touch input is disabled
- hide the notification bar
- remove all ads from the app
- add a configurable delay before the touch input is is disabled (useful if you want to use it for Netflix)
- a password can be set that is required to unlock the device
- a widget to quickly easily disable touch input
- an option to go FULLSCREEN (hide navigation and notification bar) -- *ROOT* is required up to Android 4.3 to use this though
