Touch interactions are now ubiquitous, but few tools are available to help designers quickly prototype touch interfaces and predict their performance. For rapid prototyping, most applications only support visual design. For predictive modelling, tools such as CogTool generate performance predictions but do not represent touch actions natively and do not allow exploration of different usage contexts. To combine the benefits of rapid visual design tools with underlying predictive models, we

StEM provides performance models for mainstream touch actions, based on a large corpus of realistic data. Our tool provides new capabilities for exploring and predicting touch performance, even in the early stages of design. This is the demonstration of our accompanying paper 1 .
