A fast gesture recognizer based on the PennyPincher algorithm, written in Swift.
August 9, 2015
Penny Pincher is a fast template-based gesture recognizer, developed by Eugene Taranta and Joseph LaViola (full paper reference below). The algorithm is well-suited for mobile applications since it is both fast and accurate and, as shown in the evaluation by the authors, outperforms other recognizers. My Github project provides a Swift implementation of Penny Pincher and shows its usage in a simple example project. Also, the framework contains a UIGestureRecognizer subclass that integrates well into the existing gesture recognition framework of iOS.
