The touchscreen can be used in two modes: direct mode and touchpad mode. The default mode is touchpad mode. When in direct mode, the mouse cursor moves to the touched point on screen. In touchpad mode, the mouse cursor is independent of the touched point, it is moved relative to its current position - like on a touchpad.

Most users will install/update the latest stable signed release build and plug-ins from the Google Play Store directly on their device.
The ScummVM developer page for this is here.
It is required to install the main ScummVM application from here before installing the required engine plug-ins.
For users with Android devices lacking the Google Play store access, there are several other options to install the release builds:
- Zip files with signed APKs will be provided on the download page and these can be installed with a file manager as per the instructions for daily builds below.
- F-Droid OSS Catalogue from here.
As the Play store version may be outdated or users may want to test newer development versions, the daily autogenerated builds from our buildbot can be found here.
However, to install them, a few points are needed to be dealt with:
- You will need to uninstall all currently installed ScummVM versions including all plug-ins, as you can not install a daily build alongside the stable release.
- In order to install the APKs from the daily build zip files, you will need a file manager. The free and open source Ghost Commander is recommended which can also unzip the zip files if downloaded directly to the device.
- In order to install these _UNSIGNED_ daily builds, you will need to enable the option in the Android Settings for Unknown sources.
This is usually under Settings->Security->Unknown Sources (Allow installation of apps from unknown sources).
You should turn this off again after you have installed both the main ScummVM APK and the required engine plug-ins.
Please note that the daily builds are debug builds, which means that on some devices performance may be significantly slow for certain CPU intensive features and processes, such as video decoding, MT-32 emulation, etc. The same features will probably perform without issues on release builds, which are the stable builds corresponding to ScummVM releases.
