Release Re-Touched (touch screen skin for 16x9 and 4x3)
#84
I've been playing around with different skins for my non-tablet touchscreens for a while now, and Re-touched is without match. I'm running a MSI AIO 22'' touch screen as a jukebox and a Zotac mini-itx connected to the Acer T231H touch-screen in the kitchen. Both are running Win7 (After i gave up on Ubuntu)
Great work! Especially the foundation with few, large buttons, back button always present and the great stability.
I do have a few comments/suggestions for future updates.

1. When going into configuration of an add-on, the menu moves a step to the right every time. After opening five times, it has disappeared completely
2. It should be possible to include your favourites as an add-on link to the home-page. I can see people are working on editing the include.xml manually, but as updates will erase this it should be embedded.
3. There is room for more than 12 add-ons on the home page Smile.
4. In playlist, the "move" button is not working, and editing the playlist is a bit frustrating. Instead an "up, down, remove" button to the right of the titles would solve this. Also getting to and from the playlist is not very intuitive.
The background is ok, but get's a bit uniform. I don't think the full fanart repository is suitable for a touch-skin, but variations would really increase the quality feel.
5. The Touched skin is not working for a non-table touch screen, but the button layout I find more appealing than the re-touched icons.
6. I've never really understood the idea of the Programme menu being in front. Perhaps the favourite menu would be more relevant as key menu. - At least the possibility would be great.
7. Artist/movie/album information are normally more than one page, but you can't scroll between pages in re-touched.
8. The top bar is irrelevant for a non-tablet, but I understand it is difficult to make option.

Thanks again for the good work, I'll probably come back with more comments later.
