This paper describes the MTGest framework, an open library for adding multi-touch gesture interaction to HTML-based mobile web applications. MTGest was used in a comparative study to evaluate the multi-touch gesture interaction in a mobile web application in comparison to a native iOS mobile application. The results indicates that in most cases the web based gestures efficiency is either approximately the same or higher than the iOS-based app. The study was carried out as an initial experiment using isolated gestures, targeting the iOS platform only. For generalizing the results there is a need to perform detailed user evaluation studies with different platforms and for more complex interaction scenarios.
