“So we went with a Hamburger menu…”
Inspired by this BBC article.
INT. MEETING ROOM — MORNING
WILL enters room where JANET, TOM, DAVE and LUCY are already seated round table.
Thanks for coming everyone. So The Deadline is approaching. We’ve got to nail the mobile navigation once and for all. That’s the goal of this meeting…
So let’s use a tab bar. The Interface Guidelines recommend it…
Sounds good. Of course for our Paying Advertisers it’s very important we have menus A, B, C as well as X, Y, Z
That’s more than 5 items guys! If we want to use the tab bar for that we need a Major Refactoring.
We don’t have any time for a Major Refactoring right now. Think of The Deadline…
Tab bars are so ugly. It’s going to clutter The Design. Why don’t we just hide everything behind a Hamburger menu?
Works for me. There’s a drop-in library we can use. We can fit this into the next sprint.
YouTube, Google Maps… everyone’s using Hamburger menus days. They can’t be wrong, right?
Works for me. We can demo with it to customers on sales calls no problem
Alright done! Thanks for your support guys
Hamburger Menus are Great Because…
…they meet all your internal needs!
