1. A computer-implemented method, comprising:

  • receiving, on a computing device, input corresponding to a rotational movement, wherein a rotational movement is associated with a number of units;

    determining an acceleration factor, wherein determining the acceleration factor includes determining a number of units associated with the rotational movement;

    determining a speed associated with the input corresponding to the rotational movement;

    determining that a duration of the input corresponding to the rotational movement has exceeded a threshold amount of time, wherein an input speed during the duration of the input is maintained within a threshold of the determined speed;

    modifying the acceleration factor in response to determining that the duration of the input corresponding to the rotational movement has exceeded the threshold amount of time; and

    modifying the number of units associated with the rotational movement, wherein modifying the number of units is based upon the modified acceleration factor.
