Week 9: Display of Information

The two patterns that I chose to provide examples for were the Gird display and the Infinite List display.

The Gird Display

This screenshot is from the main applications tab of my phone and it obviously shows a gird layout. Also this is an example of it because each application has its own individual icon and title. This example is pretty self-explanatory.

The Infinite List

This screenshot is from one of the Joke apps that I compared with my prototype. When reading about the infinite list, this app immediately came to mind. The screenshot is of the app as it says "Loading Jokes". This window shows up after the user has scroll down for some time. It seems that like, what is explained in the Infinite List section, the app has a database else where and after a specific number of jokes have been scrolled through, the app will pull more jokes from the database, which is why this screen on the left shows up.

  1. Good examples, although I think it's usually spelled "Grid" rather than "Gird" :-)
