not sure how good or useful this
copy-cat works on standard touchscreen devices but MobilityFlow.com today
announced Touch Commander, a - what they called it - "unique application" (even
it looks for me like a copy of HTC's previously mentioned TouchFLO user
interface) for controlling PDA and smartphones by recognizing and responding to
the touch and sweep of a finger across the screen. With Touch Commander in
place, you get a one-touch access to phone calls, E-Mails, SMS messages,
calendar, appointments, applications and other commonly used content.
The "touchy-feely" effect provided by Touch Commander is much the same as the
finger touch scrolling, browsing and spinning a three dimensional interface by
the finger in the Touch phone by HTC TouchFLO or Apple iPhone. Touch Commander
is customizable, letting you configure many of its settings. Another nice touch
in the program is support for any model of PDA powered by Microsoft Windows
Mobile 5 or higher. But the biggest specialty, of course, lies in the price,
which is nothing compared to the prices of the hi-end phones (where it is
included free of charge anyway).
Anyway, it has - compared to HTC's original TouchFLO interface - one
advantage: Touch Commander is customizable and you can add/change the
applications, launched from it.
Touch Commander runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6
touchscreen devices but requires Microsoft's .NET Compact Framework 2.0.
If you want to get the HTC Touch feeling on your old Windows Mobile Pocket PC
too, Touch Commander is available for US$ 14.95.
