You should look at (Google's) inbox for touch screen implementation of hover. There are a lot of hover control in inbox. You hover over the icon, they turn into checkboxes, you hover over title, more option button shows, etc etc... In short, they replace hover with one touch (tap), and replace click with two touch (two taps). I'm replicating this ...

While most commonly left to right is the swipe direction, It would need to be in reverse in this case, i.e. swiping right to left, just as the way they read from right to left as well as books also start at the opposite end compared to western books.

Touchscreens offer almost infinite possibilities for variable user interfaces, but tactile buttons offer accuracy, speed, motor memory and safer operation in a moving vehicle. There seems to be a an almost stalemate between the desire to offer a flexible UI and the need for physical buttons in a moving vehicle. But there may be a solution... Why not offer ...

If it is subtle and quick, it should not be too annoying that it ...

My best estimate would be that this is, in most cases, true, albeit the devices that are "smart" and powerful enough to run said application. That being said, have you considered the usability part of such an idea, like, how can they discover this gesture? Will they have to ...

It is never really safe to assume anything along these lines. No not all touch devices in the past 5 years will have gyroscopic technology (the feature that registers tilt). I have had quite a few lower end cell phones with touch input but no gyroscope (or other related features like accelerometer). Even if the device did have a gyroscope maybe it will be ...

ACM Digital Library (dl.acm.org) is really helpful when doing focused literature review. For more general research you can access Google Scholar search engine. I also recommend a great tool called Mendeley, that keeps track of your research and uploads all your material to the cloud (also generates the citations...) There are a number of papers on ...

A map pin denotes a location, it doesn't give you info about what that location is in order for the user to make the decision that "Yes, I'm interested in this location". So something like this may make sense download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups When user clicks/taps on the pin, display a popover with details about ...
