<p>The return value determines if you consumed the touch event. </p>
<p>In other words <code>true</code> means that this touch event is interesting to you and all follow up calls of this touch event like <code>ACTION_MOVE</code> or <code>ACTION_UP</code> will be delivered to you. </p>
<p>If you return <code>false</code> than the touch event will be passed to the next <code>View</code> further up in the view hierarchy and you will receive no follow up calls. The touch event will continue to be passed further up the view hierarchy until someone consumes it.</p>
<p>If you have any further questions please feel free to ask!</p>
