Definitely an awesome and very useful app I've always needed I just have one request, if there's a way to block jst the home buttons and leave the rest touchable that would complete every aspect needed for every situation,
Great Wanted this purely so I could give it to my one and a half year old to watch videos when he was playing up. Videos were constantly pausing as he was always accidentally touching the screen. This solves the problem perfectly.
needs work i have a tablet with a cracked screen, but use a bluetooth keypad/mouse for functionality. works fine. When this app is on, it also negates input on my keypad and mouse. make it so the screen ONLY gets disabled, and i will gladly buy full version!
Good start but not great yet. It's a step in the right direction but pushing the power button off and on disables the screen lock. That defeats the purpose of this app for me. Fix that and I'll happily buy the full version and become your most enthusiastic promoter. Ps. Bonus points for an optional way to disengage. Maybe look at the Mx player kids lock for inspiration. (Touch effects would send me over the moon.)
Keeps honest fingers honest. ... To start it, swipe down where you would stay your wifi or clear your notifications. Press "enable touch input". The screen that you where on will pop back up. To turn it off, triple touch the screen fast. These two lines of instruction would have been helpful to know. I have s baby and we watch sesame Street etc , and this saves him from browsing all over the place while he does his baby thing and grabs everything. Ready to use, the default setting should do it for the standard user. Love it.
It might work, but it is not easy to figure out how to use it. I often listen to the sound only of the videos while doing simple works and while carrying the phone in the pocket. It is very inconvenient that youtube and netflix video viewers don't allow to put the phone in the pocket while playing - they would stop on screen lock and other actions. This app is the solution. It is not overly easy one - but it is a reasonable usable workaround. I wish Youtube and Netflix allowed listen only mode. Maybe they do this intentionally to limit the streaming load on their servers. For youtube until now I used PV star viewer which allows screen lock, but it has few missing features - it doesn't open youtube links, forgets current position etc. The instructions how to use the app are very poor - almost nonexistent. I recommend the author to clearly place them where it is easy to find them - in the app and in the app description on google play and write clear instructions . It is a guessing work. I installed the paid key - tried and uninstalled because i couldn't figure out how to use the app with netflix - so I switched to UnTouch - Baby Touch Blocker which is free.
