If you are writing with JQuery UI and need it to work on touch devices, try including this script in your page. It will convert touch events into mouse events and make things like sortable lists work.
The code was originally written by Oleg Slobodskoi https://github.com/kof/labs
but I have revised it so it should work with non-iOS devices. I also fixed some breakage that had crept in from recent releases of JQuery UI ui.mouse object.
If you get to try it out on an Android device please give me some feedback. That goes for any other bugs you find.
