This is a set of jQuery plugins that enables web developers to easily add touch to their web sites. This library supports all modern browsers. It unifies mouse and touch events into a single event type.

Quick start

Simply download and add jquery.touch.js to your website. Make a call to $("#touch-target").touchInit(). And then "touch_start", "touch_move" and "touch_end" events will start being triggered from the element.

You can use $("#touch-target").on("touch_start", handler) to handle unified touch events.
