Steven Peeters has posted a new flash tip on his blog: Adding swipe gestures to you mobile Flex application, Steven said you can choose 2 options to use the gesture to move things around or go from screen to screen etc.

1. Using ActionScript to attach an event listener

private function initView():void {
   addEventListener(TransformGestureEvent.GESTURE_SWIPE, onSwipe);

2. capture the gestureSwipe event on the View tag

<s:View xmlns:fx=""
