Touch Protector user reviews :

Developer’s quick reply cleared up my problem. Leaving original post intact for others: Make it disable the app switching key. On my S7 the task key (left touch key below the screen) remains accessible, allowing one to tap it twice to switch apps. I wish this key got locked along with all the other ones as I use this when giving my phone to a baby.

Great app. It should have been the top suggested app for the purpose. Now i can hear podcasts from youtube without worring about touching anything else while it is in the pocket.
