I have a small problem with my thesis. It's the first time I work with latex and I have a problem with tables. I create the table below

\begin{table}[H]
%\centering
\caption{Mobile apps categories with some exemplary apps}
\label{table:1} %% \ref{table:1} pour la ref
\begin{tabular}{||c l l c l l||}
%%\hline
\hlineB{3.5}
\textbf{No.} & \textbf{Category} & \textbf{Examples of apps} & \textbf{No.} & \textbf{Category} & 
\textbf{Examples of apps} \\ [0.5ex]
\hline
\hline
1 & Calendar & Calendar & 13 & Weather & Weather \\  \hline
2 & Communication & Messenger, WhatsApp, TrueCaller & 14 & Games & Texas Poker, Quick ball, Ludo King 
\\ \hline
3 & Video Players and Editors & YouTube, HUAWEI Video & 15 & Music and Audio & Musique, Shazam, 
 spotify \\ \hline
4 & Clock & Clock, Horloge, Alarme & 16 & Entertainment & Netflix \\  \hline

6 & Health and fitness & Health, SmokeCount & 18 & Personnalisation & Theme, Wallpapers \\ \hline
7 & Phone and SMS  & Contacts, Dialler, Messages & 19 & Sports & beIN sport, Live Football Scores\\

    What exactly is the problem? That the table is wider than the page and is thus cut off? If so, you may want to a take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/q/332902/134144

    The answer to My table doesn't fit; what are my options? contains a lot of useful approaches should be applicable to your table, as well. If you want a more specific advice regarding our table, please prepare a minimal working example (MWE) including the document class as well as the relevant packages. If you use the geometry package, also include the corresponding settings.

Recently I discover the tabularray package ... For exercise let mi show two possible solution using this so versatile package for table settings. The first show table on landscape oriented page, the second one show redesigned table which can be easily fit on portrait page. The both use standard font size 10pt, however if is desired the second one can use also 11pt or 12pt and can be fit on page also when the package geometry is removed:

Since you not provide any information about your document design, I use \usepackage[vmargin=30mm]{geometry} for determining page layout.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[vmargin=30mm]{geometry}
\usepackage{pdflscape}  % landscape
\usepackage[skip=1ex,
            font=small,

On landscape page:

On portrait page, redesigned (only three columns and twice as many lines, it still can be fit on the one page):

  • Two remarks: (1) tblr environment doesn't use \tabcolsep, but you can use colsep=3pt in the preamble of the environment; (2) rowspec={*{7}{Q[gray!30]Q}} may be replaced with more meaningful row{odd}={gray!30}.

By having the table in landscape mode it will fit in the page and it will be easy to read.

This second example uses the package nicematrix, replacing the horizontal lines with rows of alternate colors.
