Touchscreen Support

Can anyone tell me if moOde supports the smaller touch screens such as the Addafruit ones like the one below?

The moOde main web page for release 4.2 has this: "Pi Touchscreen and local display" listed as a feature.
Which Pi Touchscreen?
There is more than one Pi Touchscreen available and the one I pointed to is one of the smaller ones.
Is the size for the one I pointed to too small for the moOde UI?
Does moOde come with the driver for this touch screen?
If not can it easily be added by the user? 


Thanks.

The official Pi 7" Touchscreen is commonly referred to as just Pi Touchscreen, Pi Touch or Pi 7" Touch.

moOde only provides built-in support for the Pi 7" Touchscreen and locally attached HDMI displays. Other manuf touch screens especially if they require custom drivers or OS settings are responsibility of user to integrate.

I have this screen on a Raspberry PI. I believe if you follow the script Adafruit provides, you can install it on MoOde  and set it up so it shows the same thing on HDMI and the small screen. That way it will work on a larger screen if available as well as on the small screen. 

I have used it with all sorts of applications, like Navit, and it has always worked. Whether or not you will be able to navigate the MoOde UI effectively is questionable--but probably worth testing.
