The card-based user interface is one of the easiest navigation methods for smart phones, and many of the contents have recently been exposed as cards. In this paper, we have dealt with the definitions of cards and the components of cards used in smart phones. The card can play multimedia including various images and media, and serves as an entry point into detailed contents through the arrangement of buttons or actions. The card UI had different characteristics depending on the type, if it could be classified into basic type, timeline type, workflow type, and dashboard type. The basic type and the timeline type were not suitable for the hierarchy and order of information, and they were suitable for providing large contents. The workflow type was not significantly different from the amount of content, horizontal content arrangement was possible, and the dashboard type was analyzed to be suitable for providing various data as graph or number.
