An issue I've had with mobile apps with dropdowns is that when I change the dropdown selection, it's not clear if the filter was applied. It usually happens when my phone has weak reception. I continue clicking on dropdowns but nothing happens.
With that said, our mobile app has two dropdowns.
Just above the results I added a column header that changes when the dropdown changes. That way the list changed and the user knows the filter has been applied.
I don't want to waste space on a header that repeats information.
Question: After user makes a selection, Is there a more elegant way to let the user know that the filter was applied?
Note: the filters only change the order of the rows. The number of rows displayed remain the same.
