Touchscreen technology allows you to swipe your finger across the screen or tap an icon to provide input to the device. As you have become familiar with using these features on your mobile phone or tablet, the Sundale website now functions using your fingertips (but not your fingernails).
There are several navigation features allowing you to get around and get things done on the Sundale website using its Multi-Touch screen, including:
To open a page, choose a field such as a search box, select an item in a list, select a backward arrow to move back one screen, or follow an online link, tap the item once with your finger.
Use this method to enlarge or reduce the display of a Web page or zoom in or out in the Maps app.
As an alternative to the tap-twice method, you can pinch your fingers together or move them apart on the screen when you're looking at photos, maps, Web pages to quickly reduce or enlarge them.
Also referred to as swiping. When you press your finger to the screen and drag to the right, left, up, or down, you move around the screen.
To scroll more quickly on a page, quickly flick your finger on the screen in the direction you want to move.
If you're on a page where you can select text, pressing and holding near text will select a word and bring up editing tools that allow you to select, cut, or copy text. You can also use this method to reposition the insertion point under the magnifying glass icon that appears.
Tap a link to move to another page.
Double-tap the page to enlarge it; then double-tap again to reduce its size.
Drag one finger around the page to scroll.
Flick your finger quickly on the page to scroll more quickly.
Press and hold your finger down on text that isn't a link. A magnifying glass icon appears.
Release your finger and the item is selected, and a copy tool is displayed.
Press and hold your finger on a link or an image.
Put your fingers slightly apart on the screen, and then pinch your fingers together to reduce the page; with your fingers already pinched together, place them on the screen, and then move them apart to enlarge the page.
