Add windows 8 navigation touch suport

suggested this on September 14, 2011, 13:43

add touch support for windows 8 so that it behaves like a real windows 8 tablet. Eg. Drag in previous app from the left side of the screen. Eg. Drag in context menu from the bottom of the screen. Thank you Hans

That would be awesome! They just need to make it a "Virtual (multi-touch) touchscreen", because all the needed features are already within Windows (8). Like right clicking, keyboard etc!

this i believe could be accomplished if they made single touch the same as in windows and then used 2 finger touch to pan across the screen and perform gestures. the problem right now is they use the single touch as the "hand" tool like in photoshop. if you guys can make it function just like the cursor as an option in the 3 finger tap menu that would be awesome. I also am running windows 8 dev preview on a multitouch tablet pc and having the ability to port over functionality to the iphone via normal touch gestures and function would make the iphone 4 and iphone 4s much more incredible.


thanks, its a great app!

Please generate  touch events on windows 8 instead of mouse event (and support multitouch, by generating one event per finger on the ipad)  ! Thus, the metro menu will me much more usable, exactly as one native Win 8 tablet.

Even better : You could let the user switch back to "trackpad" mode, for desktop operations needing accuracy.

Thank you for your great application !
