    There’s no question about it, touchscreens are awesome. But I don't think touchscreens are being used to their full potential, especially not on the desktop.
    • Dragging windows almost never works on the first try
    • There’s no easy way to switch between existing windows
    • Getting the touch keyboard to show up means hitting that tiny button on the task bar
    • Browser tab management/navigation is a pain
    • Etc…

    I think these problems have an easy solution; provide some new gestures to make the desktop touch experience better. So I decided to take a whack at it.
    And after 4 months of caffeine over doses, forgotten semicolons, and my touchscreen saying "not tonight honey, I’m too tired" I finally threw together TouchMe- an app that enables a slew of new gestures to make your life easier. And most importantly, it’s completely customizable.

    Does it improve your Windows 8 experience? Try it out and let me know what you think!

    TL;DR – want custom touchscreen gestures? Grab it here: TouchMe Gesture Studio app for Windows in the Windows Store

    Nice app.
    How does the 'Trial' work? Looks like a month free trial then $4.99 to purchase? Is there a limited use(perhaps a limited gesture constraint?) after the Trial ends?
    Again this app(and gesture engine) seems to expand greatly the user interface w/the w8 touch system. Thanks for your efforts

    You're welcome! Yes, there is a 25 day trial and the full license costs 4.99. But after the trial is complete, I didn't want the app to be useless. So you can continue to use 3 gestures for free forever =]

    Ok i checked it out and its pretty fantastic! One of the things I really love on my iPad is the 5 finger app close and with your app I can do that on my Win tablet/laptop! I also love being able to swipe up or down my on screen keyboard, like on my PlayBook and BB10 devices! And while I probably could get by on those 3 gestures I probably will give you the 5 bucks just to promote good development! ;)
