I have recently discovered a freaky awesome app for Android devices which turns any mobile or tablet, running Android OS 2.2+, into transparent screen and shows the usual screen as well. The app is Transparent Screen, the app is currently trending in Android Market. I found it a must have app to make a fool out of my friends that my phone has a transparent screen. Jokes apart, do you want your mobile phone to have a transparent screen? e.g. you are walking on a road while chatting on phone and you also need to keep an eye on the road.
What does it do?
It shows the realtime camera on your phone’s screen to make it transparent.
Best thing is that it doesn’t grant for any root access.
If you are going to use the app on a higher camera resolution(in settings) it will lag down your device. Although I use Sony Ericsson Xperia X10i and it lagged a but(which can easily be ignored) while using the lowest resolution configuration.
Note: This app can be laggy for many low-end devices so better try the app and uninstall if the app doesn’t work correctly. It should work good on Samsung galaxy s 2 and other high end devices. So please don’t give bad reviews about the app on market if your phone is not supported.
There are similar apps available for iPhone but they do not work as advertised. They are stupid with the “hand” images on the screen which are meant to make a fool out of the users.
This App is certainly a nice try. The free app is supported by the apps but if you don’t want to see the ads you can purchase the app.
