How to use the BlackBerry10 gestures?

Hi,

 

I would like to implement the gesture and flow technique for my BB10 app, so users could navigate through my app with their thumb only.

 

What Adobe Air gestures do I need for that and what interactions should be handle with them?

Should gestures used like the BACK BUTTON on Android?

 

Thanks for any information! :smileyhappy:

For me, I set:

Multitouch.inputMode = MultitouchInputMode.TOUCH_POINT;

 

And then listen for TouchEvents, to move windows according to the x-coordinates of the finger.

You can check out the results of my implementation in my app called "PM Assist".

Are the flow gestures used to go back and forth through menus?

In my app, yes.  Basically you use "pull tabs" to pull out menus, and you can then slide them back to peek behind them or close them entirely.
