To give a definition of “touchscreen”, this is both an input and output device that is typically layered on a top of an electric visual display system capable of processing information. It enables users to control data and information through either one or multiple touches, using a specified stylus or their finger. This capability enhances user engagement by allowing to tap, swipe and scroll to experience what are displayed. It’s seamless, it’s fast, it’s intuitive.
