I need to display in my app two values, one adjacent to the other.
The two values at the moment are displayed like this:
20 / 
What do they mean?
Well, the first value is the current value, and the second one is the new value that will be active in not more than 30 min.
Apparently, this is not easy for my customers to understand, and I am trying to figure out if there's a better way to show it.
Something to bear in mind is that I'm quite limited in space.
This is an app that works on both mobile and desktop, and the smallest mobile device I support has a resolution of 320px.
at the moment, with my current design, this is approximately how much space I have to play with:
so it's quite clear that I don't really have a lot of space to play with.
Some ideas I had were:
- Current: X/ Next: Y
- X / Pending: Y
- X / Spinner Y
- X (if tapped show a popup with a description)
The point one it's quite hard as space is already quite limited.
The point 2 might work, but again I am quite concerned with space
The point 3 will be good spacewise, but I don't know how clear it will be
The point 4 is not consistent with the rest of the app, as unfortunately there's nowhere else on that page something clickable that shows popups.
I am quite stuck here and I hope for some good suggestion from you guys.
