Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Device compatibility options for nav, part of Creating a Responsive Web Design.
- So now that we have a fully working navigation system…built with CSS, there are a few considerations…that we'll want to take a look at,…when we start considering what will happen…on touch devices.…If you use this menu system on an Android device,…then Touchstart will activate the hover.…However, if the top level link is linked to an actual URL,…or any other page, the Android device…will activate the submenu,…but then it will immediately navigate away…to the final page.…So, if you want to support submenus on the Android platform,…and allow people to select those with touch,…make sure that the top level item is linked…to a pound sign, or a hash symbol,…which is a self-link.…
That way the Android browser won't navigate away,…and then somebody can make a secondary choice.…This would also need to be the case…for "Sub Link 3", under "Design Center",…since that has a submenu as well.…On the iOS platform, Touchstart also activates a hover,…just like on Android.…However, if you tap the link a second time,…the browser will then navigate away.…
