swipe and twofingertap in android


Does anybody know if "swipe" and "twofingertap" work in Android? I tested with window events in KitchenSink and they do not seem to be fired.

    The 'swipe' event for Android was just merged in the titanium_mobile master. It should be available in the continuous integration builds shortly. If you don't feel like waiting, you could always go out to github and clone titanium_mobile.

    Details on the issue can be found in this ticket: TIMOB-767

    • Great! When will it hit the monthly releases?

    • Do you mean an official stable release? I believe this one will be part of Titanium 2.1. Titanium 2.0 is slated to come out in the next couple weeks.

    • AFAIK there's a new regime of monthly SDK updates scooping the most showstopping bugs, and that was what I meant.

      But 2.0 in a couple of weeks and swipe in 2.1 - that can't be too long

  • Swipe gestures have yet to be implemented for Android.
    But if anyone is looking, there's a really nice workaround here:

    Swipe for Android plus Vertical Swipes.

    • I just added this to my project and it works perfeclty.

    • This works great! Appcelerator would do well to implement this code internally in the framework, seeming that it's been two years and still no swipe, which is basic functionality of a mobile app and expected to work.

  • They're not currently working in Android. I've added two tickets Ticket 767 and Ticket 768

    • You'll have to apply swipe on all child views as far as I can see …
