This PR's entry should explain the reasoning behind this PR, so I'll just copy it verbatim:

* The `fastclick` package (previously included by default in Cordova
  applications through the `mobile-experience` package) has been deprecated.
  This package is no longer maintained and has years of outstanding
  unresolved issues, some of which are impacting Meteor users. Most modern
  mobile web browsers have removed the 300ms tap delay that `fastclick` worked
  around, as long as the following `<head />` `meta` element is set (which
  is generally considered a mobile best practice regardless, and which the
  Meteor boilerplate generator already sets by default for Cordova apps):
  `<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">`
  If anyone is still interested in using `fastclick` with their application,
  it can be installed from npm directly (`meteor npm install --save fastclick`).
  [Mobile Chrome](
  [Mobile Safari](

Fixes #6286 (and likely others). Thanks!

Since `fastclick` is no longer maintained, is introducing bugs,
and is no longer really necessary with modern mobile browsers,
it is being deprecated.
