I settled with this design and Icons ("My List" is not 100% correct, but I used it for the "My" to let the user feel more comfortable with the app)
Thank you for your help!
I am working on an app and I have 4 main windows, which can be switched to from a bottom navigation bar.
Recently I asked a friend if the navigation bar is intuitive or if more context is needed to understand what the Icons mean - because I had doubts that the Icons alone would be easy to understand.
His answer was, after understanding what the Icons and the App do,
"that the Icons fit their windows, but he would prefer the text to be shown all the time, not only after pressing the three dots"
For explanation: The "Random Movie" Icon is the core of the App, so that is why there is a house, as in "home".
Please forgive me my spelling mistake and the wrong Icon from the "Favorite Movies" - forgot to change it.
So my Question:
Is it better to show the text along the Icons? (I thought it would get too chaotic if too much information is presented at once, like "less is more")
Do the Icons match their descriptions, or am I on a wrong way here?
