with HighCharts 3, on touch devices, we can't anymore make the tooltip follow the touch.

But I've seen about the new option Tooltip.followPointer.

The aim is to get back the behaviour of Highcharts 2 by disabling panning and making the tooltip follow the touch, on touch devices like :

chart: {
    panning: false,

tooltip: {
    crosshairs: true,
    followPointer: true

But it does not seem to work..

In Highcharts 3.0 we removed the behaviour that the tooltip moves on touchmove, because users wanted touchmove to bubble up to the page in order for the page to be scrollable. This breaks old functionality however, and we will investigate whether we can add an option to either capture touchmove or not.
