Touch gesture offset


In one embodiment, logic embodied in a computer-readable non-transitory storage medium of a device determines a location of a touch gesture by a user within a touch-sensitive area of the device. The logic selects for the touch gesture based on its location within the touch-sensitive area one of a plurality of pre-determined offsets, the pre-determined offsets being specific to the device, the pre-determined offsets being derived from device-specific empirical data on usage of the device by a plurality of users, and the pre-determined offsets being pre-loaded onto the device.
