Use tabular data to allow users to compare or lookup specific information.
Tabular data can be extremely useful for comparing or looking up date. Do consider though that mobile interfaces are not as large as paper or desktops.
Other content types such as Selectors or Calculators can be used in many cases – abstract a lot of data making the interface and experience better.
Create tables where users need to quickly consume or reference data such as setting information, pack quantities or product specifications.
- Use styling to highlight headers or rows to assist in readability.
- Try not to create very wide or long tables – be mindful of the small mobile screen sizes.
