Abstract: This paper discusses the selection of touch gestures for children’s applications. This research investigates the gestures that children aged between 2 to 4 years old can manage on the iPad device. Two experiments were conducted for this research. The first experiment was carried out in United Kingdom. The second experiment was carried out in Malaysia. The two similar experiments were carried out to increase the reliability and refine the result. This study shows that children aged 4 years have no problem using the 7 common gestures found in iPad applications. Some children aged 3 years have problem with two of the gestures. A high percentage of children aged 2 years struggled with the free rotate, drag & drop, pinch and spread gestures. This paper also discusses the Additional Criteria for the use of Gestures, Interface Design Components and Research on Children using iPad and Applications.
