štipaju i povlače prstom
Explanation:
According to the instructions for the use of several different smartphones, the Croatian terms for "pinch" are: "pokret štipanja", "štipanje" and for "swipe": "povući prstom" or "povući prst (lijevo ili desno, gore ili dolje)".

Of course, these need to be adapted so the translation sounds better, since it seems the source text isn't a user manual.
