contexte

"The touch screen gesture may comprise a drag and release gesture and utilising the direction indicated by the user input may comprise interpreting the drag and release gesture as one of a drag and drop or slingshot action"

"If a user wanted to share or transfer a file (or any other content item) with another device, rather than directing user input toward the target device as described in previous examples, one could perform a 'slingshot' gesture where the file is provided user input away from the target device instead. If a file were originally located at the position of a notional slingshot , a user can drag the file back, as though it were attached by elastic material to that notional slingshot . For example, if a user dragged back a file to position , if a user released it then it would move in direction, assuming a slingshot-like behaviour, to device . Similarly, dragging back the file to position and releasing would result in it moving in direction towards device.
