    It can't maybe if you try to replace the top screen with a touch screen which has a 99% chance of not working with out other hardware changes.

    Guys, the DS screen is actually a multi touch screen, but the ds's superficial restrictions prevented it's use up until now. now hard mods required.

    Search for SVSIP. That's the functionality the developer wants to add.

    The DS's screen isn't multitouch, read this article.

    Still very buggy but at least work is being done on it.


    I'm hoping the phone will be sorted out for next release.

    This release is not worthy of a 1.0. Maybe a 0.3 would be more fitting.

    It's either still possible to add multi-touch functions or this is a lie.

    Well I for one played Taiko Drum DS with two styli. Worked flawlessly. If multi is more than dual touch then of course I wouldn't know. I've very hard to figure out why you'd want more than two fingers (or styli) on the screen at once though. It would be most awkward holding either the DS or the IPhone that way.
