Testing on old Android (partially, because it doesn’t support 3d transforms) I noticed there is a threshold of about 15 pixels before the touchmove event starts firing. Also known as “touch slop”, which is absent with desktop and mousemove events of course. This may have interfered with calculating the speed and the sensitivity of the flickability, so I lowered the additional threshold in the script itself – the base value isn’t accessible. No doubt iOS has a similar functionality built in to distinguish between swipe and tap.

the only wheel that moves is the right side one, but only when I flick downwards on the middle wheel.

For this I have no explanation yet, each reel should handle its events separately…
