I am developing a mobile application supporting iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
The app comprise of "sectional navigation". By sectional navigation I mean it has various sections such as:
I am assuming that there could be a total of 8-10 sections and each section takes the user to a new screen. Some of them may open an overlay with a close button ("X" icon) at top left corner.
I want to keep a minimalist design. I had two options in my mind:
1. Tab Bar with "More" tab.
2. Horizontal scroll bar with all the options in place.
However, I am confused which would be appealing aesthetically. Tab bar seems a bit old fashioned and horizontal scroll bar seems on the opposite line of minimalist design.
I, however, saw the app Zomato which has a design update recently. They have placed a "+" icon on the bottom right corner of the screen, which when tapped, reveals menu options. I have also visited iPhone App: Tab Bar vs. Dashboard (aka Grid Navigation). Or both? and Alternative to the tab bar (in iPhone app) on this website but somehow I couldnt get my query resolved.
This is something navigation design related and numerous opinionated answers could help me try a bunch of stuff for my app and get some helpful reviews from my testers.
