Cards

You can use cards to show screens from another app in your app. For example, users can tap a PDF attached to an email message and view it in a previewer instead of switching apps. By using cards in your app, you let users complete a task entirely in your app. Choose from the following three types of cards:

Previewers

Users open a previewer by tapping a file type that you added previewer support to. A previewer transitions in from the right side of the screen to the left. Include an action bar with a button and applicable actions on the previewer.

Use for

Displaying content such as photos, emails, and documents, or play audio and video files.

Use for

Creating content such as a new contact, calendar entry, or status update.
