Dealing with Flash in a Multi-Touch world?
I've been kicking this idea around for a while now in my head. I know iOS currently doesn't run Flash (and may possibly never), however even if it did there is a considerable amount of Flash content(games) that wouldn't work right anyways.
Most of these require a mouse pointer position, left and right clicks. A multi-touch environment like iOS doesn't do this very well... actually at all. The tap is the click and no good way to create a right click.
My though is to "fake-a-mouse" if iOS can handle it. First a user places their middle finger down and maintains contact. This becomes the pointer position. Taps to the left of that point with the index finger register as left clicks, taps to the right with the ring fighter register as right clicks.
I'm not a developer and a fairly weak Applescript coder so I have no idea how one would actually implement this in actual code. To any iOS developers, is this even remotely possible? Could this be useful in programs like everyAir that getting better at streaming content from your computer to your iOS device?
