Trello on a touch screen

We use SCRUM for various development projects, mostly from a regular whiteboard.  However, I have previously been very pleased with the ease-of.-use of trello when working in geographically dispersed teams, and now want to have the flexibility of merging things by gathering around a large touch screen in the office. 

However, I find that dragging cards between lists does not work at all.  Instead of moving a card, the entire view tries to scroll (e.g. left to right) as I attempt to drag. I found some old discussions of this issue (2014?) and was just wondering if there is a solution?  The problem seems to be agnostic to choice of browser.

Hey Jens!

Currently, the only "supported" touch screen capability is with the iOs and Android app version of Trello.  It may work hit-or-miss using a web browser, but it's not officilaly supported functionality.

I'd recommend submitting a feature request so they can know how many users really want the functionality, and potentially get supported soon!

Thanks Matt, wlthough not the answer I was hoping for .... :)
