Description: Scrollen, zoomen, wischen und streichen: Das Berühren des Smartphones wird oft zu einem repetitiven, beinahe zwanghaften Ritual und ist längst Teil unseres Alltags.

Scroll, zoom, and swipe: Touching a smartphone often turns into a repetitive, almost compulsive ritual and has long become part of our everyday lives.
