Thanks for this, it’s nice and simple but works!
One thing though. I have a site where I want the user to be able to swipe left/right to move between articles, but swiping up down should use the default scrolling action. (It’s probably easier to see than describe.)
This seems to work fine on an iPad, but on my iPhone 3G the vertical scrolling ends up being very jerky. Something is interrupting the default action from happening, but I can’t work out what to tweak to fix this. Any ideas?
