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)
Great for my toddler. This touch blocker works great. I use it when I let my toddler watch videos, since he's always pointing at things on the screen. It does work with Netflix, you just need to activate it during buffering. The only thing I would fix is the triple-tap disable feature; my toddler actually manages to disable the app with this feature on, even though he certainly doesn't triple-tap, apparently him just touching the screen three times even slowly disables the touch blocker with this on.
Good app with some issues Galaxy S7 EDGE. Back button to re-enable touch doesn't work. Recent apps key not blocked. Would pay for a user rhythm based unlock. Use this most for YouTube while phone in pocket via Bluetooth...but clicking Bluetooth device button while locked doesn't pause the video as it does when unlocked (sound mutes though so you think it is paused). Can this be done?
Just Works! It's greats to be able to disable the touch function on the phone when I hand over the to my son. When I initially came across the I had my doubts with the old android gingerbread type GUI.. But I am glad I tried it. It works well, I have not had any issues. It's also very configurable to how the touch function can be reactivated. Recommend it
e-Readers' best companion With this app you can handle your tablet as if it were a real book, or a solid insensitive surface. Nothing improves ergonomy and interaction design more than this extremely simple, yet powerful idea. Try it yourself.
