I have an Android application that displays information row by row. Like below


Field                         Value
Field                         Value
Field                         Value


Some of the rows can be tapped to display more information in the form of an Android Toast. I was wondering what the best way to inform the user that some of the rows are tappable. My first thought was to display an exclamation mark on the row, but it doesn't necessarily make sense for an exclamation mark to be there.

Thoughts?

Thanks for all the help, it's appreciated

Try testing the smallest effective difference with your users.

If some of the rows are offering details on touch, you can test with your users if a link color works. Since the whole row is tappable, You could try making each value per row as a link.

You could try a background color if need be as well. This might run the risk of being confused with a selected item, so try one visual distinction first, and add another as needed.

Text can be unambiguous, and tell the user exactly which rows offer more information.

If you are opening a new screen when tapped on rows, you could show arrow icon towards right side of the row.
