I've been somewhat struggling on how to display a two column table on a smartphone (iOS app specifically).
My said that they would like something other than a boring
UITableView to display the data. I told them that while it maybe boring it is the most user friendly option and most practical. That being said, I decided that I would sexy up a
UITableView in hopes that they would realize it's the best option.
Here is the structure of the data:
My biggest issue is trying to include the title of the columns into the view. Here is what I was thinking:
Have the view work similar to the Twitter app, where you can swipe in between tables. The first view list by the "Commonly Prescribed Medicines", the second view list sorts by "What is Treated".
"Commonly Prescribed Medicines"
"What is Treated"
As you can see at the top, the two little •• to denote that the view is horizontally scrollable.
My only issue with this is that it seems like I'm overcomplicating it. I don't see any benefit in being able to switch between the different data views. It's such a small subset of data that you can easily digest it all on a single screen.
Please shoot holes in my idea.
