Showcasing jQuery List with a fake iPhone

Download jQuery List View Demo

The inspiration for our jQuery List comes from Apple's iOS and its nice display of a persistent header and index navigation in lists - what Apple calls a UITableView.

Table views are versatile user interface objects frequently found in iOS apps. A table view presents data in a scrollable list of multiple rows that may be divided into sections.iOS Developer Library, About Table Views in iOS Apps

The problem we sometimes face is having a small amount of screen real-estate and a large amount of data to display. Thankfully Apple really nailed the UI (user interface) of the Table View and we have replicated two key features within our jQuery List Plugin:

  1. Permanent header situated at the top of the list to indicate the current section
  2. Clickable table index to quickly jump to the related section of the list (A to Z index)

To really show off our plugin and pay homage to Apple, we have created (with the help of some friends) the UITableView of the web world.


Live iPhone Demo

Check out a live demo of our jQuery List plugin using the iPhone 4 below. Take note of the header as you scroll the list and click the A to Z index for quick navigation.

This demo uses the latest web technologies. If it doesn't look anything like an iPhone, you should download a decent browser.

Real World Examples

We've used the jQuery List plugin in a few projects but we're interested in how you use it. Send us a screenshot of your implementation with a small description and we will showcase your example below.

Streamtimer - Timesheet Widget for Streamtime

Streamtimer is a simple desktop tool, built with Adobe AIR using HTML, CSS & javascript. It lists tasks assigned to you, grouped by day. Displaying the day info in a header which sticks to the top of the panel is critical, as the number of tasks per day can vary from one or two to a dozen or so.
