I've noticed a few apps changing their navigation design pattern from using the hamburger panel menu to now icons at the bottom of the screen. I notice that Netflix have done the same this week.
My concern is how users know that the menu and search is now at the bottom? Is it deemed acceptable to let customers using VO find it using the finger gesture? Does anyone know of any workarounds? I'm assuming this will also cause problems for users with switch controls?
I was considering using hint text to say a three finger tap will take you to the bottom of the screen where you will find the menu and search etc (not exact wording).
Any suggestions on this would be fab!
