We are proud to announce that ValQ has now optimized touch support for Touch TV, mobile, and other touch-screen devices.
With touch navigation becoming increasingly prevalent in applications, ValQ has made this new update thereby enabling interactions with models easier and delightful for the end-users giving a digital board room experience.
ValQ will automatically detect the touch device and enable the touch features. You can also enable/disable the touch support functionality and switch back to general ValQ features.
In this blog we will look into the various feature enhancements that ValQ touch support offers :
