This article is for UberMenu 2. If you are using UberMenu 3, please check out the UberMenu 3 Knowledgebase: Touch Interface
The first thing you need to understand about touch devices (smart phones and tablets), is that there is no true “hover” event, as there is with pointer (mouse-based) devices. A gesture (tap) on the screen must be translated into a hover or click event in the browser. The intent of the user is unknown, so the gesture is somewhat ambiguous. Since on menu items, hover and click have two distinct functionalities (open submenu versus follow link), the OS must use its “best judgment” to approximate click and hover events based on taps.
