As applications that originated on desktop computers find their way onto new multi-touch enabled devices many interaction tasks that were designed for keyboards and computer mice spread to new touch-based environments. One example is the selection of regions, for instance in image editing applications. While there are already several studies involving multi-touch object selections, region selections have not been closely examined. Instead of using traditional mouse-based interaction schemes we propose a multi-touch selection technique that better suits touch-based devices. Based on this technique we propose a novel way to take advantage of multiple touches to easily extend, modify and refine selections based on the order and relative position - the context - of touches.
