Navigation

Primary Navigation

Springboard

Use a grid layout for items of equal importance, or an irregular layout to emphasize some items more than others. Consider personalization and customization options.

List Menu

List Menus work well for long titles or those that require sub text. Applications using List Menus should offer an option on all internal screens for returning to the List Menu, usually a button in the title bar with a list icon or the word “menu.”

Tabs

Clearly indicate the selected menu item by visually differentiating the selected tab from the others. Use easy to recognize icons or icons with labels.
