    I tested this on numerous Android tablets and phones and it worked fine on them. I also tested it on an iPhone and it worked there too. I have not had a chance to test it on an iPad, but I would assume it works in the same way that an iPhone does. If it's not working for you then either you're testing it on a different kind of tablet, or since I wrote this plugin there has been an update to the software on some tablets that is making it no longer work. That being said, I do have plans to make some big improvements to this plugin that will ensure that it will work 100% on all devices.

    Thanks for letting e know about this.

    Hugh, it's a pity that you are not going to improve on this. The idea is excellent. So simple. I'm not able to decide how easy it would be to circumvent it automatically, but I really think you should give it another try.

    I think that odjinud had the same problem I had. I, too, thought it broke on my iPhone, until I read some other jQuery-documentation telling to use the fall back mode:

    1) click on the icon.
    2) clik on the empty box.

    I was mistakenly trying to drag'n'drop, which apparently doesn't work. This - off course - has to be clear to the tablet user.

    I suggest you make an instructions field for tablet and one for desktops. Or something similar. Otherwise we will loose too many users.
