There is already a map tool which can do touch events. You can also see an example of one here github.com/DMS-Aus/Roam/blob/master/src/roam/maptools/…

comment How to make QGIS abbreviate labels with a dictionary?
See the edited function. It will now split on space, lookup each word, return the shortform, or if not found return the full word, join them back together with spaces and return the result. This is giving you clues, you will have to tweak depending on your needs.

comment How to clear python console in QGIS?
Don't write to the console when trying to debug. Use QgsMessageLog.logMessage("message", "title") to write to the log window.

comment Error with layer.pendingAllAttributesList
QgsMapLayerRegistry is a singleton (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singleton_pattern) i.e there is only one map layer registry, ever, so you access it though instance(). That has nothing to do with what you are getting out of it as a result. instance() returns the instance of QgsMapLayerRegistry. It's a gross pattern but we are stuck with that for now.
