About this app

EdgeBlock protects the edge of your screen from accidental touches. Great for phones with curved screen edges, thin bezels or infinity displays.

The touch-protected area is adjustable and can be made invisible or any color you like! Adjust the color, opacity and width of the blocked area and specify which edges should be blocked. You can set which edges are blocked separately for portrait, landscape and fullscreen modes.

There are many ways to control EdgeBlock. You can temporarily disable (pause) blocking by tapping the notification. You can turn EdgeBlock on or off with a Quick Settings tile. And finally, you pause/resume or start/stop the service using public intents compatible with automation apps such as Tasker (be sure to specify the package name, flar2.edgeblock)

Public Intents:

EdgeBlock has no ads and does not collect any of your data. EdgeBlock is lightweight and does not require invasive permissions. It only needs permission to draw or display over other apps.

The free version is fully functional. The only option that requires payment is "Apply on boot." If you want EdgeBlock to automatically start at boot, then you must buy EdgeBlock Pro. If you do not wish to pay, you can start it manually at each boot and still enjoy all other features, ad-free.

After a little further testing three of the edges work exactly how I need them to work. But one edge does not. The edge at the top of the phone regardless of orientation does not allow you to touch it and touch something else within the same app. So this is The edge that would have the front facing camera. Basically the edge that would be the top of your phone.

Used with the pixel 6 Pro, but not very helpful. A lot of apps still use swiping in from the left side to open the menu drawer. Having this app enabled basically disables that. I can't get any of those menu drawers to open by swiping in from the left side of the screen.

There's an option called "Leave space for nav drawers." Enable it and you can open nav drawers by swiping in the bottom third of the screen.

Pretty handy app. One bug I noticed is it will not allow me to pause the feature thru the notifications panel after awhile. I don't know what triggers it but after I can't, it only allows me to turn off the feature in my phone's settings. It would be neat if we can see info in the edge panels like the time or battery info in landscape mode. Thanks for stopping me from accidentally pressing the screen lol.
