 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 :)
