Tap gesture on Windows 10 Mobile very temperamental

  • Problem Description

    When running a game on Windows 10 Mobile the tap gesture is very temperamental.

    Mostly it does not work at all. It worked fine on Windows Phone 8.1 with the same app packages so this is most likely an issue/incompatability with the Edge browser on the phone. An interesting point to note is that locking the phone and unlocking again seems to improve the functionality massively but as soon as the app is restarted touch input seems to be broken again.

    I've tested this on a Nokia Lumia 920, a Nokia Lumia 930 and a Microsoft Lumia 950

    All of these devices were fine when running 8.1 and all have issues when upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile
