 Hi Guys,

I am looking for a way in which I can detect any tap on the screen (not just
in my app), I don't mind not having the information of what the tap was
(control/letter), just the fact that a tap was made will suffice for me for
Is there any possible way to achieve this?

Capturing tap on screen

by Ray Thomson » Wed, 04 Aug 2010 02:04:26 GMT

 Although this is a step towards the solution, precisely what I am looking
for is to run my app in the backend as a service and get to know the taps on
the screen (on any app). I am not interested in knowing what the tap was and
what it resulted in, all that I want to be intimted is that a tap was made.

Is there a way to achieve this?

And thanks Sarwar for trying to help me out :)

1. Missing developer console comments

I logged into the developer console this morning to find that comments
for all my apps posted later than December 20, 2010 are not showing
up.  Anyone else having this issue?

To be more clear, I've got five apps on the market, and all have been
commented on multiple times in the last few weeks.  Just yesterday I
could view comments from January 5, 2011 all the way back to June,
2010.  Now I see comments up to December 20, and nothing more.  The
comment section in the market on my device shows up-to-date comments,
so I'm only really worried that I won't be able to view recent
comments from the console.

Any help or more information on why this is happening would be
