Touch screen gestures are used in Apple devices such as the iPhone and iPad. These simple touch gestures allow users to browse and flick through pages of content effortlessly and fast. These gestures are something I need to consider when designing my Hull Street-life museum iPad app of the G. Stevens sweet shop!
I have thought of a few loose ideas that some of the touch screen gestures could be implemented such as; the ‘Tap and Hold‘ gesture could be used when a user wants to fill up their sweet weighing scales when they find out how much it would have cost years ago for example.
Another gesture that could be used is the ‘Pinch‘ that could be used to zoom out of a close up part of the app on a particular sweet. The function would be like a ‘go back’ gesture.
