How to use it?

Very useful! Thanks : )
You use it like this:
$(SELECTOR).on('doubletap',function(event){
alert('doubletap');
});

Sorry for double-post, I want to make a little suggestion/addition.

To seperate multitouch (e.g. zoom) from doubletap, you can change the minimum delta in die if-clause. Like this:
if (delta < delay && delta > 50)
instead of:
if (delta < delay && delta > 0)

Kind regards

[See Final EDIT below....]
Hello, when I attempted to integrate this js, the code that assigns the event handler to a canvas element throws this error: TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating '$(placedItemObj.itemCanv).on('doubletap',function(event){
alert('doubletap');
})')

any thoughts on what I am doing wrong? [EDIT] In changing '.on' to '.bind' the error is no longer thrown but the event also does not bind to the selector. I should note that even when I backed up and attempted to implement the multi-click sample event here http://learn.jquery.com/events/event-extensions/ (upon which this extension is said to be modeled), I got the same error. I should also note that I verified that the custom event handler code is definitely being included, after the main jQuery js and before this code is called.

[Final EDIT] My apologies - the error I was getting was caused by an outdated local version of jQuery. Updating jQuery to http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js totally removed the error and allowed the event to fire as expected.

@Enesbil to detect that event isn't multitouch

if (e.touches && e.touches.length > 1) {
  return;
}

There doesn't appear to be a way to pass a delay value, but it's a great plugin nonetheless 👍

I've made a tiny custom event which is superior - https://github.com/yairEO/touchy

@yairEO You have used tabs AND spaces, and have left debugging code in there...

Hello, It need a filter for two finger multitouch usage !
The filter must discard two different location taps !

You need to parse event params:

if (e.touches && e.touches.length === 2) {
  // two finger multitouch event
}

This is a part of the work yes, now the filter must discard two different location taps

Nice, I can't give you an answer with one row of code, you need to implement some logic with event touches coordinates

Sorry for my english I'm French:) Yes it's mandatory because when we slide with two fingers there is a lot bad taps received and this frequently make a false double tap.
just store the last tap coordinate and make a difference with the new one to get the delta. If delta > tolerance; return.
There is no need for touches.length check.
