I am building an ipad application. In my application I show images. I've got a toolbar that contains basic abilities like sharing, shopping etc.
I want my toolbar to be an anchor point throughout the application, as users can swipe to different page, yet the toolbar remains the same.
My problem is how to set the right ratio between not making my toolbar too significant and yet keeping it visible and accessible.
This is my current solution (see attached image), though I feel as though it currently gives a sparse feeling, with no real anchor point.
Do you have any suggestions? How should I tackle this issue?
