Disable Trackball


Jan 20, 2011
First off this is not where I want the app to be. I could use some help from anyone who has some general knowledge into development. Message me if you're willing to help out a bit.

Anyway I just uploaded an app called trackgone. It's my first app so it's not amazing by any means. Working out some bugs, but I figured if people really wanted to get rid of this then I found a way. It will freeze your phone for a few seconds and give you the force close/wait pop-up. If you hit wait after pressing on your trackball movements should be disabled. Any responses would be awesome. Also other things people would like to see in the app should get sent to me. I think it would be cool to make this a sort of Christmas tree app. Let me know how things work.
