List of WIP Skins with Touch Support
#1
Brick 
Hello, all. I decided to download and test some of the WIP skins on XBMC 13.2 Git:20140817-0f3db05 (Compiled: Aug 17 2014). I tested these skins on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (SM-T700). Here are the results of my testing:

These skins have full touch support:
  • Box
  • LCARS
  • metroTV

These skins have limited touch support:
  • Aquatic
  • minime (responds to some touches but libraries aren't selectable)
  • MYEPi (very laggy, can be unresponsive to touches)
  • Unity (responds to touches but scrolling through the library is very laggy, VideoOSD doesn't display on touch)

These skins have no touch support:
  • Tube (touching forces loss of focus)
  • Welo HD (touching forces loss of focus and causes graphical glitches)

More testing required!
  • Gaze (nothing loads on home screen)
  • Persona (doesn't load, blank home screen)
  • reFred (doesn't load, blank home screen)
  • Aerith
  • Arctic
  • Avalon
  • Carbon
  • Celestium
  • Cycle
  • element
  • equilibrium
  • Excalibur
  • Fuse
  • Immersive
  • Lucid
  • Scotch
  • Simplicitas
  • SiO2
  • Substratum
  • Vision
  • Xbox One
  • xTV 3.0

After all of my testing, I have found BOX to be the best WIP on my Android tablet.

Update: the criteria for my testing was simple. The skin has to respond to basic touch selections. If I touched a selection and it did not respond, the skin was marked as incompatible. In instances where I could make some selections but other basic functionality was comprised such as being able to scroll through a library, I marked the skin as partially compatible. If a skin is marked as incompatible in 13.2 settings, I was unable to test.

Could you test Xeebo too ?
I'm wondering why it isn't marked as touch compatible on the depot.

You can add Substratum to the list of compatible skins too.
Hitcher and Arcantur are coding it to be touch compatible.

Xeebo is marked as incompatable with the most stable version of Gotham so I couldn't test. I updated my original thread with that note.

Let me know when Substratum is available and I'll test it and update the list and wiki.

Thanks Maxoo, I'll test it out.

Is there any way to get this enabled in the XBMC version that is currently shipping? It's impossible to download via the application as it is marked as "incompatible".

Installing through the skin dev repo as said by Hitcher doesn't work ?
