drag "Far enough". ie just slide your finger from right to across the
keyboard for backspace, slide left to right for space/next word. slide from
bottom to top for "switch layout" and slide from top to bottom for "enter". as
such the code requires a slide of 1/4 of the width (or height) of the keyboard
to be registered as a slide. make sure you keep your finger held down otherwise
the drag gets interrupted with a "release" then a press again...
