You should use Touch U.

Adobe is moving towards touch UI across marketing cloud solutions to provide an unified experience. 

Adobe introduced a new touch-optimized UI with AEM 5.6 for the author environment. This differs considerably from the original classic UI as it is designed to operate on both touch and desktop devices. The basic principles of the touch-optimized UI are:

    Mobile first (with desktop in mind)
    Responsive design
    Context relevant display
    Reusable
    Include embedded reference documentation
    Include embedded tests
    Bottom-up design to ensure these principles are applied to every element and component

Classic UI versus Touch UI

                         
ExtJSGranite UI
Remote Procedure CallState Transistions
Data transfer objectsHypermedia
Client knows server internalsClient does not know internals
“Fat client”“Thin client”
Specialized client librariesUniversal client libraries
 

 

AEM is gradually migrating existing layouts/modules to Touch UI, but at the current point in time some UI’s are still on classic (original) UI (eg. design dialog). Adobe will continue supporting Classic UI in near future.

Touch UI is mobile friendly - that is - if you want to modify a site with a Tablet - you can via Touch UI. 

When developing components with Touch UI - you use different APIs to build the dialog. You use Granite APIs. This is covered in this ASK THE AEM Experts on Touch UI.

A components view is the same - that is-  the component script is the same and same data is rendered. TOuch UI or Class UI - the same component is rendered. Only difference really is how you build the dialog for authors to use on Author instance during design time.

To be frank, it is not worth for any project. Nobody likes to update or fill the component details from Mobile device. I don't see any business value in it. it is just another feature.

All new features since version 6 have been developed for Touch UI only, so unless you want to be restricted to the older classic ui features, you should really be using touch ui now. If you are starting a new project(i.e. 6.2) there is no point in developing it in classic ui.
