Multitouch Apps

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

While I work on a multitouch-enabled Silverlight client for multitouch-apps.com, I’ll just maintain the list of multitouch software here. If you found other great apps, just leave a comment, or tweet to @multitouchapps.

  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 http://stforms.net/stnotepad-touch/

  11. Hey, came across this site that lists a few previously seen apps, but one new one to me.
    http://www.kodyaz.com/touchscreen/windows-7-touch-screen-software.aspx

    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

  12. Hi there, I have a Acer touch screen all in one PC and i’m looking for the following touch screen apps,

  13. @Andrew, you can use the current (as of now) Firefox web browser and follow the directions here to enable pinch zooming. It rocks on my Acer W500.
