Mobile Internet gains popularity due to the increasing use of smartphones having wireless network capabilities. However, the current click interaction method (hereafter, CC) hinders user experience when the size of the target hyperlink to be selected is small. The present study developed a two-step click interaction method (called Press and Flick; hereafterPF) for smartphone and evaluated its effectiveness by GOMS model. GOMS results indicate that the PF has a substantial benefit compared to the CC when a click error is occurred. The PF can enhance usability and user experience (UX) by reducing click error and providing a joyful interaction.
