Some interesting work that I finished has been applied to file navigation and thought I would share on the development.

Was thinking of "IMach" could be a great way to navigate in Mach with touch screens. Who knows.

THIS IS A LIVE PREVIEW BELOW, take you figer or mouse and "drag and release up/down" I also detect "Right/Left" "Swips" as well.

There shouldn¡¦t be a learing curve to use it, I think that is way a trillion people like the IPhone ƒº

This type of ¡§scrolling¡¨ should feel nature to work on a touch screen. The mouse does not do it justice  ƒº

-If you hold down and slid up/down it will scroll 1 at a time

-The shorter distance traveled in a longer time will make it scroll slowly

-The quicker you release will "roll" it quicker"

I measure distance and time and direction

I decided to do this to get angle of rotation:
Math.atan2(y, x)*57.29577951308232;

There is alot of math envolved and I think I about got it pretty much to how the Iphone works.

I'll see how it goes might end up with a full touch screen based off this consept.
Let me know if the idea sucks or might be good.
