This may be worded a bit funny, but here’s the general idea I thought of while building parallax XP’s.
There’s already a gesture trigger for “swipe” in IF, but I don’t believe the swipe gesture measures the number of pixels/coordinates of movement that the person drags their finger. For example, in the slot machine game in one of your sample XP’s, the swipe gesture triggers the wheel to spin. However, the trigger only finds that ‘a swipe happened’…not how far the user swiped, or any distance.
I’m wondering if this feature would actually open up a can of worms, rather than do good…but here we go:
Is it possible to create an IA of some kind that measures Speed, and X, Y distance of someone’s finger-swipe?
This isn’t a fully-hatched idea, but I’m wondering if having binding’s for the coordinates of someone’s finger could deliver more value. My end-goal is to find easier ways to create parallax presentations without covering up assets with the input/scrolling object. I’m not sure how smart phones do it, but it’s interesting to be able to swipe through menus, but still touch on buttons for apps in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts/ideas to build on this!
