The main reason for using tab menus vs sliding menus are

  • Tab Menu shows the most important navigation items at all times making it easier for a user to move through them. Also making them just one click away.
  • Sliding menus give equal priority to all items. Although there is a priority in terms of order in a/b testing, it is mostly found that users don’t use most of the navigation items.
  • Tab Menu allows the user to return to the same place they were before in terms of screen scroll. e.g. news feeds on Facebook. 

 

Tip #2 :  Use Accordion Controls instead of Navigating to New Screen
