According to Will mousedown events fire with Touch events on OpenLayers mobile?, openlayers 2.11 supports click-like behaviour for vector layers only.
Separate from that, regular pinching/zooming/panning works on the whole map. Weird thing, though, is that zooming on the ipad triggers a click event...
My problem: I don't have a vector layer, but I do want to handle click events on an ipad. I tried attaching 'touchstart' in addition to 'click' to my existing click handler, but that doesn't give any reaction.
So my question is: can I have an OpenLayers.Handler.Click handler on the whole map that reacts to touch taps?
Update: click events work anyway, see below.
