8. Organizing Information: List Views

Chapter 8. Organizing Information: List Views

You might have noticed that the vast majority of websites built using jQuery Mobile have their content laid out in very similar ways; sure, they differ in the design, colors, and overall feel, but they all have a list-based layout.

There is a way in which we can organize our information and take advantage of each and every space in the browser: information is displayed vertically, one piece under another. There are no sidebars of any kind and links are organized in lists – for a cleaner and tidy look.
