This gives a more native feel to touching an element. Uses 'touchstart' event which is a lot faster than 'click'. Like native apps, you can touch an element, then drag your finger off the element and it will not register as a click. If you drag your finger back on, it will register. For non-touch devices, it will fire the 'touched' event when it detects a click.
This will add and remove styles to an element in a list simliar to how iOS or Android natively does it.
