Swiping, scrolling and flinging are some of the most commonly used gestures in mobile apps, and Jetpack Compose apps are no exception. In this talk, we will deep dive into how you can incorporate these gestures into your Compose app. We’ll start by looking at the building blocks which Compose provides us, and then work our way up to building a custom scrolling layout. Along the way we’ll also take a deep look at how you can customise fling gestures (hello snapping), build nested scrolling gestures, and more.
