I am writing a Windows program that downloads jokes from a website and presents them to the user. Currently, the jokes are displayed all together on a bulleted list. I've been told that the design is not practical and its been suggested to make the jokes displayed in pages with navigation buttons like a 3rd-party app shown below. The stated advantage is that it tires the eye less.
This is the design of the 3rd-party app:
And this is the design of my app:
I countered by saying that my app's design needs no button pressing (only scrolling) and that it makes use all the available screen (the app in the first picture particularly, when used on a tablet and there is a big joke does not use all the screen for this one joke).
