Often, I find people struggle with the usage of press-and-hold gestures on mobile/web platforms. The mere thought of having a user press on a defined object and hold for an arbitrary amount of time before the product reacts seems overtly complicated and unobtrusive. My questions are:
- For what use cases do press-and-hold gestures best fit?
- Have there been published studies with regards to press-and-hold gesture intuition?
- Are there more viable alternatives to this system?
