More and more Windows touch laptops and tablets are appearing. Comicrack on Windows is incredibly powerful, but touch support is minimal. There are two things I'd love to see:

1) Tablet-style touch support for turning pages. I'd like to swipe with the same flow and smoothness of a tablet application.

2) Larger UI option - this is a nice to have, but it would complete the touch experience. Honestly, I really don't need it that much, as I spend a lot more time reading than organizing, and I have a number of ways to have a better experience there (grab a keyboard and mouse, etc.)

Please, please, please!!

You can change pages with a swipe gesture.
I'm currently not planning to add Touch UI enhancements. I think the better place for this would be a dedicated Modern UI version.

You better hurry then, because the way it's going, Microsoft will kill it soon :).

I apparently have not figured out the swipe gesture very well. I wind up having to touch in the corners to turn pages. I'd be just as happy as a Modern version, but other than touch enhancement, there's not a lot I need out of it. Though it certainly would make RT owners happy.

This reminds me...on my Surface Pro, I have swipe left and swipe right stylus gestures mapped to page forward and back (I think this is default as well) but they don't work. The indicator that the gesture was successful comes up, but nothing happens. Been meaning to post but forgot until now...I've been touching the corners as well.

I *can* get the swipes to work, but it's very sporadic. I'll get 3-5 in a row, and then the next four will fail. No idea why.

I'd like to vote for a Modern version. I'd like to work on something myself but I'd like the ComicRack remote library API to be available. I don't fancy creating a full REST API (though I did with the ComicRack Web project).

I could also build it in independently and use SharpCompress to read archive directly but I'd rather it be tightly integrated to CR.

Using the desktop CR works okay but I really like the Metro UI.
