I want to get my mom a phone, but inevitably as soon as I hand mine (MotoX) to her, her fingers on the screen are read by the phone and one menu or another opens, the screen backs up, etc. I need an app that will, on command, lock out all but some limited screen response, like maybe swiping, until one of the hard buttons is pressed. I’m not looking for a ‘lock screen’ or ‘disable phone’ app, just something to manage screen-touch responses. Any recommendations will be appreciated.
Hi @robertr.4tuajn I work with a non-profit that work to help people with Essential Tremor (called HopeNET) and unfortunately I’ve yet to see a great solution for what you’re asking. The closest I’ve seen is just a generic “senior” launcher that provides very large buttons and then in the OS disabling the swipe navigation and moving back to the older button based navigation.
Hi @robertr.4tuajn and welcome back to the Member Community. Have you explored the Android Accessibility Suite?
I’m not very familiar with what the Suite offers but thought it might be worth a quick read Other Members may have some suggestions too!
