Abstract

Touch gestures can be a very important aspect when developing mobile applications with enhanced reality. The main purpose of this research was to determine which touch gestures were most frequently used by engineering students when using a simulation of a projectile motion in a mobile AR application. A randomized experimental design was given to students, and the results showed the most commonly used gestures to visualize are: zoom in “pinch open”, zoom out “pinch closed”, move “drag” and spin “rotate”.
