Multi-touch interaction on mobile devices typically consists of taps and swipes Simple gestures that don’t exploit the full range of technical and human capabilities. Some devices offer more sophisticated, expert-level gestures, but these haven’t yet been widely adopted. To determine what factors might be preventing widespread adoption of expert-level gestures, we examine the use of multi-tasking features on the iPad as representative of widely available, but optional, expert-level gestures. We survey a group of 106 iPad users about their device habits, awareness of expert-level gestures, and how they are used in everyday tasks. We determine that users have a fairly high awareness of expert-level gestures, and willingness to perform them, but often find them difficult to discover and challenging to learn. We conclude with design implications for future research.
