Working with long lists

Something cool is cooking up in our labs.

It is a challenge presenting large amounts of data on mobile devices in a usable way.
One of the things we’re struggling with is working with very long lists. Lots of data can make the interaction with mobiscroll slow, and it degrades the user experience.
Another problem with really long lists is navigation. If you have for instance a thousand records, it is hard to find what you’re looking for. Scrolling through a lot of records is not nice.

EDIT: After coming across the same problem several times plus the with suggestions coming from our users we tried implementing a solution by breaking the list into manageable chunks, and making the search easier.

Take a look at the following video and tell us if you like working with 1000+ names. Because we think this makes it a whole lot easier to find what you’re looking for.

Oh… and it works with other nested lists too.
Stay tuned for more updates, and the release of this feature.

EDIT: We’d like to take the opportunity again to thank our users for the constructive feedback, testing and donations they’re giving. That makes mobiscroll possible!
