Horizontal scrolling – Page indicators
It works like this:
The user views an item
The user swipes to the left/right
The next article is shown
The page indicators are updated to show the new state.
This is great for new applications where the users simply want to move to the next article. It is nearly identical to a carousel but then without the next/previous items being visible.
- The quickest way to move through a list of items.
- No need for a next/previous button.
- Although you don’t need a next/previous button you now need to show some sort of progress indicator.
- if there are too many scroll items then having too many indicators at the bottom (more than a line) messes the UI experience (AK)
