Droid, Android 2.0, and Multi-Touch

Picsay, an Android photo viewing application, offers pinch-to-zoom multi-touch on the U.S. Droid. (Looks pretty smooth in the demo video, too.) But this shouldn’t be confusing or surprising. As I wrote a few days ago, the Android 2.0 OS offers multi-touch APIs, so third-party developers can do things like this. What is missing are multi-touch gestures in any of the standard built-in apps or reusable controls.
