Learn Basic Touch Gestures with This Reference Guide

Touch Gestures Reference GuideWondering how to use multitouch gestures on a smartphone, tablet, touchscreen laptop, touch-capable mouse (like the Apple Magic Mouse), or even the trackpad on your laptop? Besides tapping and double-tapping, you’ve got a wealth of ways to move your hands on the touch surface to make your device do your bidding.

This Touch Gesture Reference Guide (PDF) from LukeW illustrates the core gestures and some advanced and upcoming gestures you can use on most modern devices. It shows how you can rotate items by moving two fingers in a circle or pressing down with one finger while circling with the other, how to pinch or squeeze an object to make it smaller (e.g., to zoom out of page) or spread or splay your fingers to scale the object out, and more.

LukeW’s touch gestures┬áresource download page also has a useful table showing how to use touch and multitouch gestures on the iPhone or iPad (iOS), Windows Phone 7, Palm webOS, Android, OS X, Windows 7, Microsoft Surface, and other platforms.

As we start to interact more with our computers and mobile devices through touch (and multitouch), these resources will come in very handy.
