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.
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.)
Doesn't block recent used apps key I would love to love this app but it doesn't block the button to swap between 'recent used apps'! This key is located right where little fingers hold on to the phone! Defeats the purpose of locking the screen if that button can be selected which backs the tiny human viewer out of the video. Every other feature seems great and works as described. Please fix it so the recent apps key is blocked too!! (Samsung S5 user)
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.
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!
