Problem with gesture support for Android devices

Are pinch gestures not supported on Android?


I have an identical prototype made for testing on a mobile device. I designed it for Android, and used some pinch gestures to simulate zooming in and out of an image. No matter how I try, I can't get the gestures to be recognized on device. I tried the same prototype on a iPhone and the pinch gestures work flawlessly.


The Android phone is a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2 Jellybean. I've tried the stock browser, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Dolphin Browser HD. None seem to work. I've also tested on a Nexus S running the same OS version and software.


The iPhone is a 4S running iOS 6.0 using Safari.


Thank you!

Justin can you or someone tell me how you got the pinch / spread gesture to work on iPhone? I have the reverse problem: I cannot get zoom in/out (via spread/pinch) to work.
