Mobile sort and/or filtering patterns for long lists

I need to review examples of how other mobile apps have dealt with long lists of items. Specifically what interface is offered for sorting the list or filtering the list. Ours is a mobile web application - not an IPAD, Android, BB specific app- and it is possible for the customer to have a long list of items. The list displays the item name and a number attribute representing depth. Many customers will have less than 10 items but some could have pages of items and will need a way to either sort by Name or Depth, or filter to find a specific Name.

AND OR NOT visualizations

Guys any good examples that visualize many combined options with multiple use of AND OR NOT...

thanks in advance, or if there is a standard control for that, I tried transferable list boxes, and rows in a grid with AND OR  NOT as a column, not good enough...I also tried multiple combo-boxes...I need a neat intuitive solution, does such thing exist?

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.

Simple product filtering implementation - feedback please

Hi there,

I've just put a new bit of product filtering live on a client's site, and I'd love a bit of feedback.

You can read a blog post explaining a bit about what we did here:

and you can view the filtering here:

Showcase/Portfolio examples

Hi all,

I just came across 37Signals' Sortfolio (,
which allows users to filter through portfolios.

It reminded me a little of Google's Fast Flip
(, although that interface offers
minimal filtering and meets different user needs.

I'm interested in finding similar interfaces that showcase pages and
allow extensive filtering. Can you think of any more examples? (It'd
be nice if they were as well-executed as Sortfolio, naturally.)

Sparkline filtering

Any good examples out there of sparkline filtering? I pitched this
concept to Delta 4 years ago and it did not go anywhere. I had yet to
see it until this morning looking for a new refrigerator on the LG

Anyone else out there see examples of this?

Filtering-- Seen any good examples recently

Hello everyone! I am researching filtering and querying interfaces and I was
wondering if anyone had run across any that made an impression on them. They
can be interesting, beautiful, unusual or even awful patterns I just want to
see what we can dig up.

I am following the guidelines that Jennifer Tidwell described in her book
Designing Interfaces, so I am looking for examples of filtering and faceted
search tools that are one, or all of the following: Highly Interactive,
Iterative and Contextual.

Bonus points if you can locate unusual frameworks for doing this!

Usable Query filtering examples?

Hi all,

Can anyone point me to usable examples of filtering information? We are building a site that affords users the ability to sort through a dataset of @ 1000 items, which are grouped into one of 3 types. The types are not mutually exclusive, so users may search for one type of item, and then query for a specific subgroup.

Filtering mechanisms?

I was wondering if people had favorite RIA filtering examples long lists.

In particular, I want some ideas for filtering large lists based on
several attributes where the attributes have different characteristis.

For instance, a filter might include date parameters (which use a
calendar widget), states (in a drop down or some other selection
mechanism), and a status (which could have 5 states).
