Lists - UI Checkpoint

The two list views developed so far are definitely functional, but they're pretty visually unappealing. As described in the User Interface article, it's not sufficient to be functional - it's critical to also provide an elegant user experience.

Fortunately, both iOS and Android have mechanisms for customizing the contents of a row within a list. In the next two sections, I'll explore those capabilities, and provide a more visually appealing list.

From a design perspective, I'd like to include the following:

  • I'd like a graphical representation of whether this spot is public or owned by the current user.
  • I'd like to see the name of the fishing spot.
  • I'd also like to see the comments associated with the spot.
  • I don't need to see the fishing spot coordinates - that's the purpose of the map view.

I'll now revisit the iOS implementation.
