Thanks for the hint with the event system.

But i do not think that UICamera.currentTouch.collider.name works, because UICamera.currentTouch odes not have a .collider .
Maybe you mean UICamera.MouseOrTouch.pressed ? not sure because its not documented only by the fact that its there.

You're right, I'm missing one thing. It should be:
  1. UICamera.currentTouch.pressed.collider

Just tested around and found something interesting.

In my drag and drop script that is mainly a copy of yours i found the following line:

  1. if (UICamera.currentTouchID == -1)

On my mac currentTouchID == -1
On my IPad currentTouchID == 0

So that does not work on mobile.

is there any specific reason why currentTouchID should be -1 ?
I just overwrote the line with
  1.  if(true)
and its works now.

The only thing I am not sure if its a bug or misbehaving because of my fix, but the drag movement is very smoothed out / delayed. (cant tell if its writhe that way because i did never seen any drag movement on mobile before.)

Inside your event functions you can always figure out who sent the event (UICamera.currentCamera), RaycastHit that resulted in this event (UICamera.lastHit), as well as the on-screen position of the touch or mouse (UICamera.lastTouchPosition). You can also determine the ID of the touch event (UICamera.currentTouchID), which is ‘-1′ for the left mouse button, ‘-2′ for right, and ‘-3′ for middle.

Ok thats a thanks for you JRoch.

Now is the only remaining question is the delayed / super smoothed behavior of the dragged object normal at touch input?

Yeah it's normal.
