    Hi,

    Your slider is amazing and works really well.
    Could you please add the functionality to use finger to swipe the slide on touch enabled devices. This feature will enhance the useability of this amazing slider a lot.

    I've done some work on that feature. Can you try it on my website and tell me if it works well for you? http://jltweb.info/realisations/wp-parallax-content-plugin/

    That's a first shot ;) I will improve it in v0.7

    Tried this (using iPhone 4 and iPad 3, both on iOS6) on both a site I'm developing and your sample page with these results:

    • Swiping did not work
    • Was unable scroll up or down as the slider was grabbing the gestures. I was occasionally able to scroll on the iPad if I swiped outside of the slider first.
    • The auto-slideshow stopped after I attempted to swipe. The arrow icons were displayed and would not clear with out a reload.

    The plugin is excellent and I thank you for it!

    Hi jeff,
    there's still a lot of work on that feature :)
    I've tried 2 jquery libraries to manage swipe movements and the one I use in v0.7 is not the best...
    Thanks for your feedback :)

    Any updates on this? All we would like to do is be able scroll down the page (the touch swipe from left to right is not so important at the moment).

    We might have to switch sliders if this doesn't work. (After all, what good is a responsive slider (for mobiles) if the scrolling up and down doesn't work?

    We really like the plugin overall!

    You can try the development gitHub version, in which a new script is used to manage touch events:

    Please tell me if it's better!

    It should work with touchSwipe.js in v0.1-dev
