I'm building a similar date picker option to the Mailbox one. I'm arguing with friends about their UX logic for returning from screenshot two to screenshot one.
This is their main date picker screen:
After selecting the "Pick Date" option, you are presented with this screen:
I have a problem with understanding how a three dot option here is actually a back button that leads to the previous screen. I understand that users would understand it after they tap on it, but it just doesn't feel intuitive.
So, my question is, should there be only one button on the bottom saying: "Set Date" while having an X in top right or back button in standard iOS position on top left or just having the tap outside the date picker pop the view and take you back to the first screen of picking a date? Mailbox's default behaviour for tapping outside date picker options is cancelling the reminder and going back to inbox. Another option could be writing "Back" or "Cancel" instead of having those three dots button.
What do you think? Thanks ;)
