    Default help how do i get rid of grid lines on samsung Galaxy S3?

    I cannot get rid of what appears to be grid lines... at the top of the screen is a bar with with y and x and the numbers change as you move your finger on the screen creating a grid as you move
    It is like a free tx at the same time ie a blue line is left wherever i run my finger no matter what app I am in.
    I did have the app "Free tx" which I have deleted but hasn't solved the problem
    Please can anyone help me?

    Are you on a rom?

    If so, check development settings/Or something in settings. Maybe its something like Show screen updates.

    Default Ok my mom is having troubles with grid lines

    At this very moment I'm under developer options in my mom's phone settings and I found something that says show touches which states as the following: show visual feedback when screen is touched. I have turned that off and on and the blue lines still do not go away what else could I do to make these blue lines from appearing on my mom's phone??
