Description

Argus Touch Blocker can prevent unintentional touch interaction with the touch screen of your device by blocking touch input. When you disable touch input while watching a movie you don’t have to worry not to skip scenes by accidentally touching the screen. Also useful if you hand your phone to someone (e.g. to show them a picture) and don’t want them to mess with the device.

Usage: install and start Argus Touch Blocker, then select ‘Enable’ in preferences (you may also set it to be launched automatically at each reboot of your device). You can then lock the screen by clicking the notification icon. On ICS you can also unblock touch input by clicking the icon again (this is not possible using earlier Android versions, but there are other options when the screen is unlocked, like receiving a call or turning the screen off).

Note: with ICS it’s not possible to disable access to the navigation bar. Also blocking of hardware buttons (e.g. capacitive back/home buttons) cannot be blocked (not without root access at least). Sorry, but there is nothing that can be done about — it’s a restriction of Android.
