Touch Gestures and Multitouch

The touchscreen is an intuitive user interface for a hand-held device. If utilized well, it can transcend a need for detailed instructions. After a finger touches the screen, drags and flings are natural ways to interact with graphics. Multitouch provides a way to track more than one finger down at the same time. This is often used to zoom or rotate a view.

Some touch events are available transparently to the developer without the need to implement their detailed behaviors. Custom gestures can be defined as needed. It is important to try to maintain a consistent usage of touch events as compared to other applications.These touch events are discussed further in Chapter 5,"User Interface Events."
