Improved Touch Experience in amCharts 4.4

The just released version 4.4 of amCharts includes two new ways to improve user experience on touch-enabled devices. Touch interactions with charts can interfere with desired interactions with the containing page and vice versa. amCharts 4.4 addresses these issues.

One option lets you switch touch into a tap-to-activate mode – touch interactions are enabled only after the user taps on the chart and are disabled after a period of inactivity.

The other option enables a special “grip” control that helps users scroll the containing page with no ambiguity as to which element should handle touch.

Check out all the details about these features in the documentation.

Download the latest version to enable them.
