Ok, Here’s the Skinny on the Hamburger Menu. Don’t use it.
It’s not User-centric. My (skinny) reasons:
1) It’s generally found in the top left corner of the screen. That’s just hard to reach.
2) It’s generic and non-descriptive.
Note: If you are considering a Hamburger-type menu feature, then:
- design a custom navigation-access icon, something other than a hamburger, unless you are McDonald’s. Make it relevant to your app.
- put it at the bottom of the page, maybe centered above the tab navigation bar.
The rest is up to you, that's why they pay you the big bucks, right? Go get ‘em!
