Fond of texting while walking? Unless you’re extremely nimble, you may have bumped into people, objects, or even stumbled. In extreme cases, you may have even bruised yourself or broken a few things. But if you have an Android device, you can use the Transparent Screen app to help you navigate even while you’re glued to your gadget’s display.
As its name implies, the app turns your display semi-transparent using your device’s camera to show you what’s directly in front of you. It’s available for free download from the Android Market and once installed, using it is as easy as tapping on its icon. You also have complete control over the transparency of your display, so you can adjust the app’s settings until you’re comfortable with what you see.
