I am designing android app in which user sees a listing of products with prices per unit and next to that need to show if its high price or low, please give me suggestions

  • Can you please give some more information about high/low level? Can you please provide some information on the use case . Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 17:32
  • yeah here what I want to show, Just let me know If its good to show like that?because I am new to material design link Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 17:50
  • Can each card provide some more info on each item and the state(drop/increase).. The design is a bit unclear. Can give more details on it. May be that would better illustrate the state. Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 18:00
  • Up down arrows indicate change in rate compared to previous rates Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 18:02
  • Is it possible to provide by how much the rate is less or high when compared to the previous rate? Just saying it is high/less is not really a good design. May be a percentage value or the difference from previous rate will help the user gain some idea on what is it about. Showing relevant details will your design to be easily understood Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 18:08

If you mean an indicator that tells you whether a price is high or low (compared to whatever reference group) and can do your own icon design/ selection, I would suggest something like the following:

  • Okay Thats good wintvelt but I dont want to show it in such details. But Just to know user if its high or low. Just like stock market, Here what I did link Commented Feb 5, 2016 at 17:52
  • I see. The typical stock market symbols, the ones you also use, communicate that the price has gone up or done. So compared to the price of the same item yesterday or in time. If that's what you look for, then they are fine. What I thought you meant, and what I tried in my sketch, is to indicate whether the price is high or low compared to prices of something else at the same time, e.g competitors.

  • Thanks a lot. And you did great usability testing. That detailed info can also be useful Commented Feb 6, 2016 at 10:59

You can use 3 characters for depiction of price if price is high use ↑ character if price is low use ↓ character else if price is medium or ok use ↔ character
