GestureWorks Core

GestureWorks Support January 9, 2013 Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between GestureWorks Flash and GestureWorks Core?

GestureWorks Flash is the predecessor to GestureWorks Core and is written in ActionScript. GestureWorks Flash is tightly integrated into Flash's display framework, and it works seamlessly with Flash/Air development and deployment. GestureWorks Flash provides a gesture based web solution and has many multitouch components built into the framework.

GestureWorks Core is completely language independent and allows the use of any language or platform that can call into DLL files. It utilizes thin language-specific bindings which create an interface between the GestureWorks Core and the application. GestureWorks Core utilizes the processing algorithms of the Flash version and optimizes them with the power and efficiency of C++.

What hardware do I need in order to create applications with GestureWorks Core?

All you need is a computer with Windows 7 or later and some type of input device. GestureWorks can receive touch points via a touchscreen or you can give it formatted input from any other type of device.

What software do I need in order to create applications with GestureWorks Core?

You need the GestureWorks Core SDK, Windows 7 or 8 and a compatible programming language of your choice.
