Simplifying drag and drop
Simplifying drag and drop. At the most basic level, drag and drop is a gesture where a user can tap and hold an image, text string or other data element, then drag it into another app (or to another location in the same app) and release, where the data is incorporated in the new location. This gesture is usually a long press on touch screens or a click and drag when using a mouse.

The Android drag and drop framework enables you to add interactive drag and drop capabilities to your app. With drag and drop, users can copy or move text, images, objects—any content that can be represented by a URI—from one View to another within an app or, in multi-window mode, between apps.
