What is the best touch screen input driver?

For the Slide Show 4 skin I use the TouchSwipe jquery plugin version 1.6.9 as touch screen input driver. This is an easy to use driver with limited possibilities.
I recently tried the latest version 1.6.18 which did show some weird effects if you push a button, so I can't use that version.

So I have the next questions:

Are there other skins who is using this driver and if so do these skins see problems with the latest version?

What is in your opinion the best touch screen input driver for skins?

When I looked at your sample album with my iPad, I could not use swipes, so I made my own test album with images with image bounds of 1920x1080, see http://andrewolff.jalbum.net/ClassicAligned2/ and this thread.

Next I raised the resolution of some panorama images with user variable maxImageWidth=30000 for some panoramic images, but that gives a crash:

The sample albums are rather old, indeed. I should update them ...

Next I enlarged the size of some panorama images with user variable maxImageWidth=30000 for some panoramic images, but that gives a crash:

This does not surprise me. The layout depends heavily on user interface variables and calculations done in init.bsh before the actual album generation takes place. Manually feeding unexpected values in between can produce unpredictable results.

These are no 'unexpected values': the image gets the width which belongs to a height of 1080 pixels so that you can scroll through a panorama.

These are not really "drivers" but just jQuery plugins.
I have used https://github.com/mattbryson/TouchSwipe-Jquery-Plugin

OK may be I used the wrong name, but I am using the same plug-in.
