I don't think a table is a good view to use for this - precisely because it is not dynamic. You should look up ListView or its sibling the GridView and use that instead. You would create an Adapter that iterates over the values you want to display and creates the TextViews and assigns the values. By using an Adapter you can provide the data to / in the Adapter and have it provide the Views that will show up on the device. Since you want to have two TextViews per line, I would probably use the GridView, but the ListView is a bit more backwards compatible, so if you wanted the largest version coverage you might do a ListView and create your own extension of the ArrayAdapter which provides a LinearLayout with two TextViews side by side.
 
The harder you work, the luckier you get. This tiny ad brings luck - just not good luck or bad luck.
