With Ease Touch you could perform –by using just one finger– all those actions that allow you to control the mobile device. It captures all touches on the screen, distinguish voluntary touches from non-voluntary ones, and allows you to perform most standard gestures (e.g. tap, double tap, drag, swipe, pinch, etc.).
If you are a person with a traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, parkinsons, essential tremors; or you are a relative, caregiver or assistive technology professional, this app might be of your interest.
Works on tablets and smartphones with Android 7.0 or higher. Does not require any external hardware.
HOW IT WORKS?
It provides three modes to filter undesired touches:
– Accept on release mode. Once your finger starts touching the screen it can be moved freely without triggering any action. A big cross show you the position of your finger. When your release the finger, the action is immediately executed.
– Accept by time mode. Like the previous one, but when the finger is released a visible countdown is started. When the countdown expires, the action is executed. If you touch the screen again during the countdown, the action is canceled.
– Hold to accept mode. To perform an action, you must keep touching the screen until the countdown expires. If you move the finger or release it, the countdown is canceled.
An on-screen menu allows you to choose the desired gesture or another action to perform. You can go back or home, open notifications, show running apps, zoom in and out, scroll contents and perform swipe or pinch gestures, for instance.
