What I mean by "swipe for action" is described in the following site (the first image).
I am developping 2 versions of my app, one for android and one for iOS. On iOS device the swipe for action is a common way to perform actions on a list of items. However for android I used to think, that the pattern is a long click on the element and then it displays a menu that shows actions available on that element. Is it still the case, or "swipe for action" is being used as common pattern on android too? The answer to this question might be subjective, I would appreciate references that gives common user experience pattern on android.
