Navigating with the iPad

At the risk of embarrassing myself, I can't figure out how to navigate a JSAPI map using the iPad.

Normally, the following navigation tools are available from the web browser:

  • Drag to pan

  • SHIFT + Click to recenter

  • SHIFT + Drag to zoom in

  • Mouse Scroll to zoom in/out

I can touch the top and bottom of the scale bar to adjust map scaling one click at a time but I can�??t seem to grab the scale bar button and drag it up or down. The browser window shakes when I try to pan using my fingers. And for the life of me, I can�??t figure out how to simulate a shift-drag to zoom in.

I have the same difficulties when using an ADF application as well. I can select features using the point selection tool but I can't create a rectangle to select.

Am I lacking in the arcane art of gesturing or is this truly a drawback to the iPad interface? Would I have better luck using a stylus?
