Finger Style Links
As every experienced web designer knows, text hyperlinks are completely useless on touch devices. They don't provid a large enough target for fat fingertips and cause frustration and contempt amongst the site visitors.
CTA (Call To Action) buttons have proved to be far more effective than text hyperlinks in enticing visitors to click and should also be used on the full version of the site where possible.
Apple recommends that user inputs such as links and navigation blocks should be at least 42px square for finger tips and 72px x 42 px for thumbs.
This apples to slideshows, galleries and audio and video players too.
The Touch Hyperlink Tab creates a CTA button with a number of styling options and can link to an internal or external page.
NOTE that the button does not have an option to open a hyperlink in a new window as this would be kind of pointless for use on touch devices!
