Right-Click Workaround on Mobile Browsers

Much of the functionality/actions are behind a right click menu for torrents (changing the save path, forcing a recheck). There is no way to bring up this context menu on a mobile browser like Safari on an iPad or iPhone.

My suggestion is to either:

  • add the javascript to override the default context menu and trigger the right click menu on longclick (for example, jquery has a longclick handler)
  • add a column with a button that will just trigger this action in the browser, thus bringing up the very clickable context menu?
  • add a tab to the lower section with some buttons for the actions that are in the context menu, so you can at least trigger these actions after clicking on the torrent itself

The lack of right click has always been something I've worked around using the text console, but it continues to be a frustrating experience on mobile browsers such as iPhone and iPad where a right click is not possible.
