  • 7. List-Based Layout Every mobile web document has a few identified zones:
  • 8. Horizontal List Design Pattern
  • 9. Horizontal lists have limited use on the mobile web as they can be difficult to read once they begin to wrap
  • 10. A common use of this design pattern is for breadcrumbs and for top navigation menus.
  • 11. Breadcrumbs are typically short and rendered in a small font which minimizes wrapping
  • 12. if the list is being used as high level navigation use a background colour to visually separate the list (or list elements) from other elements on the page.
  • 13. Accordion Menu Design Pattern makes good use of the display space available to the user without compromising on the ease of use and look/feel aspect of the web page
  • 14. NewFordOffers expands to show the sub-menus while others are collapsed
