Improved Mobile app input

I suggested a tablet style input about a year and a half ago, but was told that due to certain complexities between the app input and the remote screen, it was unfeasible. Instead, I'd like to propose an alternative to make using the mobile app a bit quicker for people to use.

Currently, tapping on the screen in a mobile device equates to the position of the cursor on the remote system. Single-, double-, and triple-tapping all migrate the remote mouse cursor to a new coordinate.

As an alternative, I would like to see a double-tap move the cursor and left-click (like a macro gesture). A double-tap-hold would move the cursor, and hold the left click. A Triple-tap would move the cursor and double-click the remote mouse.

Not sure if these detections are feasible... A timer-on-tap that only stays active for 200-500ms upon first tap that translates consecutive taps into a macro to activate the remote mouse would be, in my opinion, a blessing for us mobile-heavy users.

Double-tapping is currently a quick-zoom. I don't seem to use it very much, pinch zooming is a lot more natural and controllable on tablets and mobile phones.
