The Touch Events

A session at WebExpo Prague 2010 Conference

Friday 24th September, 2010

3:00pm to 4:00pm (CET)

On touchscreen phones, the touch action is a frightfully complicated one, since it can mean several things. Users may touch their phone because they want to click a link, because they want to scroll, or because they want to zoom. Handling these various use cases correctly is what distinguishes a good touchscreen phone from a bad one.

The touch action also fires several JavaScript events which web developers need in order to create an appealing website that works well on touchscreen phones. We’ll discuss these events, too.

Finally we’ll take a brief look to see what the future holds in terms of touch actions.
