Introduction to iPad development

Conventional web design techniques do not always work as expected on tablet devices...

The main difference between a tablet and a desktop/laptop interface is that there is not a mouse. No longer are mouseover, mouseout, dragenter etcetera as relevant.¬†Instead, tablet users predominantly use the following actions: click, scroll, zoom, swipe. Some of these actions can be implemented through standard javascript events such as ‘Click’ whilst others may need to use propriatry events relevant to the specific tablet. This article aims to outline simple issues that we have come across when porting our customers websites to the tablet area.
