What is the difference between an inline and drill down section?

Sections have two options for display on the mobile devices: Drill Down and Inline. The difference between the two is how the section is displayed on the mobile device.

Drill Down

Drill down display will make the sections show up on its own page. This option breaks up large forms into smaller pieces and makes it easier to navigate on the device. It can also help reduce the memory usage of the device. It adds some navigational hierarchy so that the app does not have to load all of the fields inline. Ultimately, this is a great option for bulky apps that need to load faster. Using the drill down display permits more memory allocation for multiple fields.

Inline means the section contents will be displayed directly inline on the screen with surrounding fields. This option is great for small apps because it allows a quick and continuous way to collect data.
