General Guidelines for App Menu
General guidelines for App menu:
- In iOS, for each menu item you have to provide an image for selected appearance.
Active menu page should be in Focus
- If user is at Home Screen, Home menu should be in focus.
- If user is at Insurance/ travel page, the Insurance / travel menu button should be in focus.
Clicking the Application Menu should only show a form and not include time consuming logic like invoking services. This behavior is imposed by the underlying SDK and non-adherence to this guideline will lead to degraded user experience. Ideally as soon as an Application Menu is clicked, the user should be able to view the target form without any perceived delay. In case, the form requires the data to be populated from a network.
