    Question

  • why is select implemented with tap in the your apps section of the store and not the normal select gesture?

  • Tap should trigger the default action for an item. In the store's case, the default action is "select". This makes sense in that context since there isn't another obvious default and we wouldn't want to surprise the user by accidentally triggering view or install.
