In ten years this list will be as funny, as a list of applications that support mouse input would be today.

  10. One more multi-touch application is coming shortly. Did anyone thought of a text editor with multi-touch gestures? StNotepad Touch with multi-touch gestures for all text editing actions like cut, copy, paste, delete, space, backspace, enter, tab, undo, redo, select all etc… For more information visit

  11. Hey, came across this site that lists a few previously seen apps, but one new one to me.

    The new one to me was the Snowflake plugin for Win 7, which of course is limited on the preview version. Most that are usable are not bad, I am using the Touchsmart Tx2-1244CA with the N-Trig and find that games drop their objects. So some work is needed to tweak this up but overall a fairly robust assortment of apps.

    And I’m waiting for a revamp of the various touchable desktops from HP etc – since Google appropriated Bumptop this area is sadly lacking.

    Happy Holy Days, everyone
