Content cards are one of the most common ways for apps to organize their content. They allow users to consume bite-sized samples while they browse before clicking on one to get the full-sized meal.

Using content cards isn’t enough to create a great browsing experience. You also have to optimize the readability of them. Optimal readability isn’t only a measure of whether users can read the text and make out the words. It’s also a measure of whether they can scan and process the text efficiently.
