Clean Up Touch UI for Left NavMenu / Flyouts

Description

While the flyout is mostly usable in it’s current state, it is not as intuitive as it needs to be for the best user experience. They are ineffective at best on the Kindle Fire’s Silk Browser, but work pretty well on the iPad. We need to examine all target devices to ensure interactivity is supported cross-device.

This makes the admin UI barely usable on Windows Phone 7/7.5 devices that do not support ontouchstart -- there is no way to even log out as you can't activate the user menu in the top right corner.

I'm currently looking into getting a device for testing and development.

Same thing on galaxy note 2. There is a feature with the new pen device however where you can hover, which we might be able to use for this device.

Kind regards

I ran some tests and the pen hover feature on samsung galaxy note 2 device does indeed work for this, but will naturally not solve the issued for the other devices. Nice to know however.

Kind regards
