swipe on android non responsive

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – So I have some code to trigger a jquery event and what this code does is every time a user swipes left/right over an area it triggers the event and adds a log to the console. This has been working fine on my ipad and iphone but today i have come to test it on two seperate android devices and have had little joy. I have to swipe 20/30 times before it actually logs a swipe. I wondered if I have an error in my code? var maxTime = 1000, // allow movement if < 1000 ms (1 sec) maxDistance = 50, // swipe movement of 50 pixels triggers the swipe target = jQuery('.pageSize'), (HowTos)
