As I’m working on improving the user experience of some of my recent mobile appliations, I thought it could be useful to start documenting some basic UI patterns for mobile apps.
I created a GitHub repository called “mobile-ui-patterns” where I’ll try to publish the patterns I come across in the apps I’m building.
I just pushed a first example of the “Page Swipe” pattern that is pretty common in tablet layouts.
Watch a short video here:
In this implementation, I used the swipe gesture event available in Zepto.js (a lighter weight jQuery compatible DOM library).
In my next post, I will share another version of the same pattern implemented with iScroll and its “snap” feature that provides a slightly different user experience.
