The significance of Bottom Navigation Bar

The Bottom Navigation Bar can catalyze the experience of your mobile app users in the following ways:


#1: Enable easy access:

The prime purpose of the bottom navigation bar is to make the in-app features and screens easily accessible. Users can take significant actions just by scrolling the bottom bar.


#2: Highlight important features:

Bottom navigation bar lets the app users scroll through the most important features and use them. It highlights the parent pages or features that the users can evoke to experience the app thoroughly.

The bottom navigation bar can reduce the cognitive load and facilitate the process of decision-making for users. It tells users which action must be taken next and redirects them accordingly.

 

Tips to design the mobile app Bottom Navigation Bar


Follow the brief tips listed below and perfect your bottom navigation bar:


#1: Focus on the thumb rule

When designing the navigation bar, the most important thing to remember is that users generally use their thumbs to scroll or navigate through the bottom bar.

Therefore, keep this factor in mind when designing the bottom panel. Make it suitable for various thumb sizes and resize the icons accordingly.


#2: Use identical icons

Do not experience with surprise elements when designing the navigation. Pick identical icons that look aesthetically appealing and resemble standard features that can be easily understood by the users.

Choose the background color of the bar and the color of the icons based on the overall theme of the app. Keep it contrasting and add small textual labels or content that validates the icon.


#3: Limit the number of options

Do not include too many options or a detailed scroll panel with multiple icons. Limit it to four or five options and do not go beyond that.

De-clutter the space and use it to highlight only prominent features or actions. Also add a number badge that tells users how many new updates are available in the sections. This may be about the new messages, notifications, etc.
