I was sick and tried to do something usefull at the time. So, a bit of hacking on the BlackBerry fork of SDL to add support for native gestures (Swipe down and and Back swipe "down-left to upper-right").
Swipe down is obviously used for the game menu access (F5 key) and back swipe for Escape to skip cut-scenes (ESC key).
It is pretty much ready for submission!
See below for a quick video on how the swipes are working in Sam & Max Hit the Road and Flight of the Amazon Queen.
