Transparent Screen for Android allows you to use your phone while walking

You’ve probably seen a guy or gal typing something on his/her phone only to be interrupted by an inappropriately placed tree. Heck you may’ve been the victim of an attacking tree yourself… I know I have.

Someone noticed this problem and voila – the first SMS-camera apps were released, allowing you to see where you’re going while texting your buddies. However, the problem still occurred when you wanted to check something else on the phone.

Enter Transparent Screen, a new Android app that makes your screen, well, transparent. As a result, you can use most functions of your smartphone while being aware of objects and other people in front of you. Hear that – it’s not just SMS, you can also browse the Internet or check for the latest news while on the go.

Available as a free download, the application allows you to set transparency level and the camera resolution. Unfortunately, transparency level is a general setting and you can’t change it for individual apps (which would be very handy).

Overall, it’s a nice idea and definitely an app every smartphone addict will want to run on his/her beloved gadget. Check it out and let us know what you think about it.
