Hour 11. Working with Multitouch and Gestures
It seems lately that the marketing material for virtually every new device claims multitouch as a primary feature. Whether you’re talking about the iPhone, an iPad, trackpads for the Mac and Macbooks, or tablets and laptops of all shapes or sizes—the ability to touch and tap user interfaces is becoming as ubiquitous as the mouse.
Mac OS X Lion is not without its support for multitouch gestures. Whether you’re swiping, panning, rotating, zooming, or double-tapping, your applications can take advantage of these new forms of interaction to create new, compelling interfaces.
