Android WebKit Tap Highlight Color

July 21, 2013

One aspect of PhoneGap developing apps is that any a href links on Android app give you a highlighted effect when you touch it. This only happens on Android, but after a little research I was happy I could take it off.

Default:

Android -webkit-tap-highlight-color

With -webkit-tap-highlight-color CSS

html {
-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0,0,0,0);
 -webkit-tap-highlight-color: transparent;
}

Android -webkit-tap-highlight-color
