Multi-Touch SDK for Resistive Screens Released
After months of development, member anaadoul has released the beta version of his Software Development Kit, which will allow users of resistive screens as found on just about any HTC device to finally experience the interface-enhancing power of multi-touch functionality (every current HTC Windows Mobile device possesses a resistive screen, except for the HD2).
The SDK adds support for pinch-to-zoom, dual-finger dragging and swiping and gesture-based events. Adding support for these features may be completely revolutionary to how people use their Windows Phone: Windows Mobile does not natively support multi-touch but through this SDK, dual-finger navigation should be possible on any touchscreen device through its integration in an application.
Developers looking to find the SDK should look at the application thread, Anaadoul is also looking for developers who are willing to help him create a photo album that can showcase the dual-touch functionality made available by the new kit.
