Can anyone design custom software that will work with a touch screen?


Yes. Because the screen emulates standard mouse functions, you can use the same programming methods that you would use to program for a mouse. For example, if you place buttons or images on a form, responding to a touch screen click will be the same as responding to a mouse click.

Please note though that software not specifically written for a touch screen may be fiddly for the user to comfortably browse. A finger is not quite as precise as a mouse and it is usually recommended that buttons on a touch application be larger in size than what may normally be used with a mouse. If this is not done users may need to touch the screen a number of times before they click on the right point.
