With this tool you can test the touch screen bug of your Nexus 7 2013 device.

This application only shows you a static picture. That's it. That's enough to demonstrate the touch screen bug.

1.) Unlock "Developer options"
1.a. Go to the settings menu, and scroll down to "About phone." Tap it.
1.b. Scroll down to the bottom again, where you see "Build number."
1.c. Tap it seven (7) times. After the third tap, you'll see a playful dialogue that says you're four taps away from being a developer. Keep on tapping, and you've unlocked the developer settings.

2.a. Go into the in 1.) unlocked "Developer options" menu.
2.b. Search for the "Show touches" option and enable it
2.c. From now on, every touch on the screen will be visualized with a little white point on the display.

3.) Start the test by selecting a pattern. The pattern is visualized in the left upper corner. Not all pattern cause fake touches. One pattern can cause fake touches in landscape mode but not in portrait mode or vice versa.
3.a. Look for fake touches
3.b. Touch the display with one finger (one touch point)
3.c. Touch the display with two or more fingers (multiple touch points)
3.d. Try the same pattern in landscape/portrait mode
3.e. Select other pattern (by changing portrait/landscape mode)

I found what was wrong with my opo display. Do you have a way to fix this? (Glitches on all patterns pretty much)

Michael Hannigan review Michael Hannigan
I just posted about this on XDA. I don't know if it's coincidence or not but not only is the application real, but when I have the touch issues and I run this app and select a pattern that crashes my display, it actually fixes the problem for a while. Funny... touch screen issue with the Nexus 7 2013, however, isn't funny. It's downright bewildering.
Alois Mack review Alois Mack
Just read the corresponding thread on xda. Someone even created a webpage demonstrating the problem. An I'm quite sure, that a website is not able to create fake touches on any device so it seems that really the checkboard pattern triggers them.
David Gerber review David Gerber
Funny Nexus 7 bug. I suppose the pattern generates interference noise. Note to the author: add a "set pattern as wallpaper" option to silence (forever) those who say that the app is fake ;)
Dan Hull review Dan Hull
I've had touchscreen problems since getting my new nexus. I returned the first one and the second one seemed better but the problems eventually proved to be just as bad. Pattern 3 especially hoses my screen, where other ones aren't as bad. Why hadn't Google fixed this yet??
Kemal Ljumanovic review Kemal Ljumanovic
Just got a Nexus 7 with a wonky touchscreen. Found this app and confirmed the defect. Displaying the first pattern I got fantom touches all over the screen, then the poor machine froze for a few seconds and then the app crashed. To test the app I tried it on my trusted Note 8 - and it worked perfectly, all patterns and touch smooth as butter.

Wow, this app works, and the result is terrible. I can't believe Asus/Google released a device with such a severe design defect. My Nexus 7 will actually reboot sometimes when displaying these images, probably due to the same EM interference problems that cause the phantom touch problems. Anyone know if all the 2013 Nexus 7 have this issue?
William Rotsaert review William Rotsaert
If you decompile the apk and look inside. There is no coding to check device or fake any touch responses. Please stop listening to these dumb people who think they know everything and are saying the app is fake. Take it from a developer who does this stuff for a living. This is a legitimate app and this developer did a good job showing the rendering problems of the nexus 7. Stop dissing this amazing app and disregard all of the other reviews saying it's fake. Thanks!
Lisa Ehat review Lisa Ehat
...and searched Google to see what was up and found your xda post and then this app (then noticed it was all your stuff, haha). Great to see it's the common issue. My device freaks out on some of the tests here and not others (and on some doesn't freak out until the screen is touched). Very interesting! I hope Google and Asus figure this out soon. Thanks for making this app.
Ilya Potekhin review Ilya Potekhin
And the Nexus 7 screen problems are real too. I don't think there's a perfect unit in existence, even. So whatever, it's a cheap tablet, don't worry your pretty head too much about it.
G WIZ review G WIZ
Is this a HW or SW bug? Does 4.4 fix this screen problem? Anyone went/ sent the N7 to Asus repair center to get this bug fixed successfully?
Joseph Boeckman review Joseph Boeckman
I hope this is something that can be fixed and not a hardware problem. I took a screenshot of image 1 to test outside of the app, and indeed there are many crazy touches without the app running when the image is viewed at native resolution.
Vikram Mohan review Vikram Mohan
The application seems to be creating fake software initiated touch responses in some patterns to make the user think their device touch screen has issues and that the application works. The same pattern when tried with the application closed does not cause any issues. Some of them can easily be recreated e.g. Pattern 19. Do not rely on this application to test your device.
