I am making a Web page where normally, the user navigates some content by clicking "Next" and "Previous" arrows.
For people who use the Web page from a touch device, I can either leave the arrows as they are, or implement jQuery functionality that mimics a "swipe".
I have two reservations/questions about the latter:
Have all the little details of a native iOS swipe been implemented to perfection in jQuery, or will the user perceive the response and smoothness of the simulated swipe as sub-standard?
Is it generally worth the effort to replace "Web" conventions with "Touch" conventions? How annoyed will users be having to "tap" rather being able to "sweep" and other fancy gestures?
