I finished a game where you basically only do a lot of swiping. Today I decided to test it on an Android tablet, on a browser. And it occured to me that the game doesn't work well in combination with a tablet.
When you swipe the far left of the screen to the right, it goes back one page, forward when swiped on the far right. And then there's the bottom swipe which leaves the browser app altogether. The top swipe isn't a problem because you won't go there since the navigation bar and tabs are there.
So, how do you guys deal with this? For now I can only think of a 'safe' area where you can swipe. But I prefer to apply this to tablet devices only, although I'm unsure if that's possible?
Also does this behavior also work like that on Android phones? Since I don't own any, I'd be greatful if you could tell me.
Of course another solution would be to pack it into an app, though I was thinking of licensing it to a HTML5 publisher, so it probably needs to be a browser game.
