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:
flar2.edgeblock.PAUSE_RESUME_SERVICE
flar2.edgeblock.START_STOP_SERVICE

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.

A very powerful tool to keep in my drawer. Newer phones have "skinny" frames that don't make sense to me- how do I place my hand without accidental touching? And I don't want to use grips or suction stand. I switched to a new phone just recently and I couldn't live a day peacefully until I found this app a couple of weeks ago. Happy ever since. It's extra incredible that the author even added intents. I know i can use tasker to enable it at boot, but i went on to support this project anyway.
