I want to let users view schedules on a mobile phone.
- Its a generic schedule of events
- Events can be spread across multiple days
Events can be spread across multiple venues
An event has a time slot and a title.
** Maybe this mockup would help
What I have tried so far:
- A simple list with events grouped by time slot. This does not help the users get the overlap between events.
- Tried the common calendar approach [similar to google maps], where each event is a box that extends over the time duration, thus showing the overlap visibly. The problem here is that the user now has to scroll in 2 directions. This gets disorienting.
Bottomline: Did I miss an approach? Is two directional scrolling on mobile devices a bad UX decision? Any examples?
