Touch Commander launches upon an upwards finger sweep in any application. Scrolling has been optimized for fingers, so that you can easily scroll and browse the Internet web pages by moving your finger across the screen. You can scroll web pages, contact and email list, etc. Scrolling is simple and intuitive, and is compatible with all standard applications. Browsing the Internet becomes even more exciting and convenient.

Touch Commander is customizable, letting you configure many of its settings. The program works well with any model of PDA powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 or higher.
