5 jQuery Mobile Swipe

By Sam Deering



Let’s face it we all like to swipe our mobile phones now and again! So, today we’ve gathered 5 jQuery Mobile Swipe plugins/tutorials for you to checkout. Enjoy!

1. jQuery iPhone Swipe Gestures

This plugin uses Mobile Safari’s built in touch events to allow jQuery binding of swipe events to any DOM element. You can override the swipeLeft and swipeRight defaults functions to create your own custom process when the gesture is detected.

2. WipeTouch – capture wipe on touch devices

Is an enhanced version of TouchWipe. It makes it a breeze to capture wipe gestures (left, top, bottom, right and diagonals) and is fully customizable.

3. jQuery Swipe Gallery

Is a lightweight plugin, which allows to instantly create an image gallery by writing just few lines of HTML such as an unordered list of images. The swipeGallery is optimized for mobile websites and supports swipe gestures.

4. jQswipe

Add swipe (or rightSwipe) and leftSwipe events to jQuery.

5. Multiswipe

A simple plugin to enable multi-touch swipe events in Mobile Safari, based off of jSwipe by Ryan Scherf.
