Touch Block, a Sony application that disables the touch screen

Smartphones are not smartphones without a touch screen. However, the truth is that these screens have certain problems. Sony has thought about it and created an application called Touch Block, which is dedicated to disabling the touch screen, although it does not turn it off. Can this application be really useful? Actually, it is.

Before, no one would think of reading an article while in the pool, or recording a video in a pouring rain. However, now all that is possible, thanks to the new waterproof smartphones. However, this also brings with it some essential problems. For example, let’s imagine that we are going down the street reading an article, but it is raining. What usually happens is that the screen begins to have errors. Water conducts electricity, and the result of a drop falling on the screen is the same as continuously pressing on the screen. If it is raining, although the smartphone is waterproof, the truth is that it is impossible to use it, because we will not be able to control the screen.

Touch Block is an application that Sony has created to eliminate this problem. The app is actually limited to disabling the touch screen. That is, we will be seeing the screen, because it will be active, but it will be blocked, we will not be able to control it. We can read our article or record a video even if it is raining. This application has a Small App, so activating it is really easy on any Xperia. To deactivate it, we will only have to do the same as to unlock the screen on an Android smartphone.

For now Touch Block It appears to be an app for the Sony Xperia ZR, although it is expected to be released for other waterproof Sony smartphones as well. We will have to wait if a port is made for other smartphones.
