A list arranges multiple items in a single column.
A list shows multiple items belonging to a single category. Users can select an item from a list to view more details or perform tasks.
- List items
Text that’s longer than one screen slides in and fades out at the right-hand edge. Subtext strings are limited to two lines and need to be center-aligned.
Icon with text
Supplement list items with an icon.
Lists can consist solely of icons when providing list buttons.
Multi-line items provide details of the listed items or other items. By providing details of listed items, this feature can effectively reduce users’ efforts in searching for in-depth details. Detailed text should not exceed one page.
An index helps users quickly find the items they want by dividing a long list into groups. Groups can be browsed more easily and can be indexed in alphabetical order, by category, date, or time.

A group index should fit on a single line and come before the first item of each group. As they’re just used as a visual divider, they can’t be selected. Fast scroll indexes can also be used to facilitate quick browsing.
An item comes into focus when it’s brought to the center of the screen. Other items above and below the focus are demagnified.
The bezel or touch can be used to browse a list. Turning the bezel by one detent scrolls the list by one item. Swiping up or down scrolls the list.
Users can select multiple items by touching and holding one list item.
Users can slide their finger up or down to browse a list.
