Why aren't you using a Long Touch? Or are you using that already for something else? The advantages over a long touch over a double touch:

  • Long Press is a recommeded interaction in the UI Guidelines, double touch is not.
  • It's what users expect; a user might not find a double touch action as they won't go looking for it
  • It's already handled in the API.
