touch screen and 4.5

[ Edited ]

I have an application that uses the trackball to move an image around the screen.  This sort of functionality will not work in the Storm.  So what can a developer do to in this situation?


Do I create a second version of the application which runs specifically on the storm? Since I can't add touchevent stuff unless I'm compliling in 4.7, which then means it will not run on anything lower.


Are there any other options?


I'd like to have the application run on trackball and touch screen phones and not have to maintain practially identical versions of the software

I always create two versions of the App.
