Mobile Design Pattern: Sub Menu List
This design pattern is part of the Mobile Design Patterns series.
Sub menu list is very important in mobile. Whenever we touch the main icon or the menu a list of sub menu appear on the screen to ask user about some more options, e.g. copy, paste, edit etc.
Sub menu list is like small widget which needs user response about selecting some options from the list of available options.
• Better view
• White small widget
• More options available
• In web it contains history and setting list
Sub menu is very important in mobile because menu contains only the main icons.
So the list of submenu is created by touching the main menu.
The list of submenu example is given above.
Some are used in the main menu, other are used in the web browser, and some are used in inbox also.
