Hi Laszo,sorry for the name mistake
I understand but it seems harsh to give a vote down without trying the
About the UI, after you try it you can say exactly what you do not like about
it, saying you do not like Qt Quick and Plasma is not enough for a developer,
maybe you want a cleaner interface an option could be added for that.
This new application needs as many people to try it and give constructive
feedback and even it will not replace KTouch it could be given a name and
placed on kde-apps.org or something. I hope I will have time to build and use
this application and make a comparison, Pairs application started in a similar
way, we had more implementations for a basic memory game, then a comparison
was made, the good and bad of each implementation and Pairs was born as a
combinations of the best features.
We can try this again and even add new ideas (current Ktouch is not so fun but
I am not sure how to make it more fun/enjoyable to use, maybe you can get
"Level UPs " and unlock stuff)
