They only appear to fix the WebView for native apps, not the browser, so it would basically fix multitouch input for PhoneGap only. Since PhoneGap performance is pretty poor and CocoonJS and directCanvas both will solve multitouch as well while bringing better performance, I don't see those being much useful I'm afraid.Ashley2012-06-25 12:58:27

I was looking for the multitouch plugin (Touch2) but after reading it seems that not solves the multitouch problem with the native browser on devices with android 2.x <rodmontgt2012-06-25 14:44:05

Just to clarify:

- MTFix is currently merging into WebView-MultiTouch-Polyfill (WMP), the github repo is the single place for progress updates

- HammerJS is a handy JS event framework, but nothing alike the first two

- WMP does not require nor mean Phonegap (but is compatible with it and also on the same roadmap)

- One can use WMP to enable the multitouch on potentially any html app, but only if you provide your own browser app, which is basically a container app with nothing but a WMP-enhanced WebView

- As Ashley already clearly stated CS2 will also enable multitouch, it just works rather differently. As far as i understand, it transforms and executes parts of your html app with native methods, thus being faster, but also tailored for a more specific type of apps

Hope i could help, pls correct me if i'm still getting the CS2/DirectCanvas totally wrong, still didn't get to test it but i'm still looking forward to it...
