Control rotation of a 3D object using the touchscreen

 Hello all, I'm a 4th year computer engineering student and have some
experience with Android dev.

I am working on an application that has a 3D component to it which
requires me to be able to rotate it around. I was looking at the
example at the android resources site.

 http://developer.android.com/resources/samples/ApiDemos/src/com/example/android/apis/graphics/TouchRotateActivity.html 

This example does not talk about rotation around the z-axis. I have
already tried using Quaternion for the rotations but I don't
understand how to get rotations around the z-axis

I was wondering if anyone can help me with learning how to just be
able to rotate around an object. like the example above but also
around the z-axis. I have already spend about 24 hours searching and
trying to figure this out.

The bigger issue is that once you rotate 90 degrees around the y-axis
how can you detect that the next rotation (going vertically on the
touchscreen) should be around the z-axis.

Thank you in advance.

Gimana kalau kita share foto-foto supaya bisa saling kenal kalau lagi ketemu

in an struggle to fix the problem of lack of fonts for some languages
(such as Persian or Arabic) I found out that the only platform that do
not support CSS fonts is 2.1, specifically I test 1.5, 1.6 and 2.2
with my test html and google api's Web Font. Is there any way to use
custom fonts in a webpage on Android 2.1?
