Outlook 2013's Varied View Options
Card view is designed for the People module.
Each contact item gets its own little block of information. Each little block shows a little or a lot of information about the item, depending on what kind of card it is.
The Card view shows you only a few items at a time because the cards are so big. To make it easier to find a name in your Contacts list, type the first letter of the name that your contact is filed under. Before you know it, you see that person’s Address Card.
