Navigation patterns can vary, even when it comes to prototyping mobile application interfaces. Even though they may seem to impose tight restrictions, because of small sizes and necessity to compactly arrange lots of data, there are a variety of options.

Once there was really only one style considered the trendy and widely-used  vertical navigation, aka side menu. However, there are others that can enhance a user experience, making exploration of your app a piece of cake.

List-Type Menus

Lets’ start our discussion with a standard list-based navigation that is commonly used among mobile app creators. The solution suggests displaying links one by one, letting users follow a regular flow from top to bottom.


GIF Animation by Sergey Valiukh is only a concept, but perfectly reflects a utility of a list-based navigation. The combination of colors with refined line-style icons and somewhat bold typography allows users to easily navigate through the app and not feel discomfort, which can be caused by a small screen.

The home screen features a rainbow-style menu that clearly demonstrates items of a control panel line by line. The canvas, inspired by a graph paper, goes perfectly with this kind of menu.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”appear”]Arrivo Mobile App by Marco La Mantia & Simone Lippolis skillfully organizes a bunch of data into a rigid rectangular grid. Each cell plays a functional role; since it not only displays data, but also lets you modify it via a small control panel that slides out from the bottom. Also the color choice is quite wise, since intensely hued backdrops helps to effectively allocate content and distinguish cells.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”appear”]Arrivo-Mobile-App[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text css_animation=”top-to-bottom”]


Every solution has its own pros and cons, that is why every project suggests its own type of navigation that will effectively cope with its task and contribute to user experience.
