Below is an image from an iPhone app. I want to know if it is possible to create this kind of list in android with alphabets on right, clicking on any alphabet will get us to part of list starting with that alphabet.

Hi Anuj,

Here is the way to implement Section Indexing in Android as iPhone has,
You should also refer Sectionindexer & alphabetindexer for such custom implementation.
