"FAMOS" is a research study to improve scroll interactions on mobile devices. Scroll interaction can be very tiring for the thumb, especially on large cell phone screens. The aim of the present work is the conception and prototypical implementation of alternative scroll interactions with the help of smartphone sensors and multitouch. By increasing the scroll distances and reducing the number of interactions and interaction time, mobile scrolling should be made more effective. In addition to the conventional scroll interaction, three alternative scenarios are presented. A concluding user study enables correlations between time and scroll distances as well as a speed comparison between the conventional and the developed scroll interactions. The prototypes were developed with Processing for Android and were tested on a 5.7" Motorola moto G6.
