I need to review examples of how other mobile apps have dealt with long lists of items. Specifically what interface is offered for sorting the list or filtering the list.

The list displays the item name and a number attribute representing depth. Many customers will have less than 10 items but some could have pages of items and will need a way to either sort by Name or Depth, or filter to find a specific Name.
