Input Touch Not Working Quite Right...

Ok, I’m trying to make it so that anytime the user has to hold the bottom of the screen to “float up” & then they would tap the top, while holding the bottom to get them to “float down”. Ideally I’d like it to work vice versa too & if they could hold the top to “float down” & then tap the bottom to “float up”. Right now, it works sometimes, but not always & I can’t even tell you what triggers it to work. Sometimes you can touch the bottom & you’ll be floating up but tapping up top doesn’t do anything.

Here’s my code. Any suggestions?

#pragma strict

var jumpSpeed : float = .002;
var fallSpeed : float = -.004;
var position : Vector2;

function Start() {


function Update() {

//  if (Input.GetKeyDown("space")) {
	if (Input.touchCount>0) {
		var touch : Touch = Input.GetTouch(0);
		if(touch.position.y < Screen.height/2) {
			GetComponent.<Rigidbody2D>().velocity.y = jumpSpeed;
				} else {
					GetComponent.<Rigidbody2D>().velocity.y = fallSpeed;


Sorry for the bump.
