I can click and drag on my android, but it's a pain in the ass and has like a 50% success rate. Sometimes it drags things I didn't mean to drag and I unequip things I didn't mean to unequip or load things into containers accidentally. SWC hasn't really got a phone-friendly (or now tablet-friendly) interface; it wasn't designed with that technology in mind. It is definitely an area where we could use some improvement.

This is an annoyance everywhere. The problem is touchscreens are treated differently from mice on the OS. So a touch down event (not football here) is different than a mouse left button down event. Web pages are rendered looking for mouse events when doing special things like drag and drop. The only way to fix this is to have the web page have js to detect it. I recomend tablets and phones with smart pens as they behave like a mouse and have saved me headaches many times.
Now we have put touch screen events into parts of the website. But heres the thing. They have side effects. Some people cant scroll but can drag and drop. This bc it cant tell what is for scrolling and what drag and drop only.
The common etiquette as of right now to make touch screen friendly sites is to not use drag and drop, no flash, no hovering etc etc. Not until Scripts catch up to the technology

“is anyone else able to filter items on their phone, when I bring up a filtered list it only shows part of the list and does not let me scroll down the list”
Yep, I have the same issue. I generally just don't do anything requiring much inventory work until I'm on a computer.

Or just a low-tech mobile version of pages; many sites just redirect to some mobile domain if a touch device is detected. But I don't think we really have enough people working on site development at the moment for this to happen anytime soon.
