Comprehensive guide to touch gesturesJune 19, 2010
Luke Wroblewski, fabulous speaker and author about web forms and user interface design, has put together a central source of touch gesture resources on his website at http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1073.
Each link either takes you directly to the web page of the source or to a page FULL of information about the operating systems and devices that use that particular set of touch gestures (e.g. http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1071), where there are links to documents, websites, and even sets of visuals (such as Visio stencils) that you can use in your documentation.
If you’re doing any documentation or user assistance for a device that uses touch, Luke’s set of resources is a must.
