Swipe – Powerful Sliding Plugin

Plugins 2nd March, 2012

Swipe can allow you to slide your mobile web to save space and bring your users to have new types of interaction.

Swipe introduces you content sliding to your mobile web to minimize space usage and allow for new types of interaction. Many mobile web sliders currently exist but few embody all the rules a slider like this should follow.

Using Swipe, you can track the position of the touch and moving the content exactly how the touch interacts. This interaction is very common in native apps. If Swipe is at the left-most position, sliding any more left will increase the resistance to slide, making it obvious that you have reached the end. This detection/resistance occurs at both left and right bounds.

When a user rotates their device (in turn resizing the browser window), the slider resets to make sure the sliding elements are the right size. This is only necessary for sliders without declared widths. In addition, it enables you to set a width to the container, which designates the width of each slide element. This is important if you do not want a full width slider (the default). Scroll prevention is one of the most overlooked pieces of mobile sliders. Swipe detects if you are trying to scroll down the page or slide content left to right.
