Many Android Trainees ask me about the difference between a TableLayout and a ListView in Android Technology. I thought I would provide a quick explanation:

Content or items provided by TableLayout do not respond to an event, such as click, Unless they were a clickable items to start with.

However in the case of ListView every item is clickable. You can attach item selection listeners to it to respond to a user action.

You should consider using ListView when you want your user to perform some tasks. Where as, Table Layout will be a good place to display content.
