Row height in Android App

Postby Silli » 20 Mar 2013, 15:43

Hi,

first, this is a great software and android app!

Can you change the row height of category and feed listview in the android app? I think this would be nice if the row is a little bit higher ( actually high * 2 or * 1,8). Similar Google Reader.

I don't need a google reader clone. :oops:

I need higher rows because that is finger friendly!

Similar to much other apps :!:

Hmm. I don't think that list row height is that much different from other apps, for example gmail. It uses android preferred item height.

The GMail message list row height on my phone & tablet both is between 2 and 3 times the height of the category / feed list in the tt-rss app.

I find the items in the Category list in TT-RSS are about half the height of items in Gmail. Of course, a big part of why is the message preview, which the Category list in TT-RSS won't have. But if I compare to something like the bookmarks list in Dolphin, the items there are maybe 50% taller compared to TT-RSS and are a nice size for tapping.

For what it's worth, I don't have a problem with tapping on them, but my first reaction was "wow those are small."

Exactly that's my opinion. And I have fat fingers! :lol:

For reference, there's a section in the Android UI guidelines about minimum size for finger targets I think... Will see if I can find it...
