Translating touch events from Javascript to jQuery

I am using

window.addEventListener("touchstart", function(ev){
console.log(ev.touches); // good
});


How can I translate this to jQuery? I've tried:

$(window).bind("touchstart",function(ev){
console.log(ev.touches); // says ev.touches is undefined
}


Any ideas?

Answer

jQuery 'fixes up' events to account for browser differences. When it does so, you can always access the 'native' event with event.originalEvent (see the Special Properties subheading on this page).
