Specifications

 

The application has three logical screen-tiers: 

  1. The general subject (eg. Movie Search or Music Search)
  2. The search screens (eg. People Search or Album Search)
  3. The detail screens (eg. Person Details or Track Details)

Screens from the first and second tier should only appear once in the application, whereas detail screens can appear as often as they are needed.

We assume (well, I assumed) that the UI would be too confusing for the user, if there is one navigation menu for each screen tier. Therefore we want to merge the tiers two and three into one navigation menu.

In a quick sketch, we would implement the specs from above like that:

Blue rectangle: Navigation menu area for the general subject

Red rectangle: Screen display area for the general subject screen;

Green rectangle: Navigation menu area for search screens and detail screens;

Orange rectangle: Screen display area for search screens and detail screens;

Violet rectangle: Navigation menu area-part of search screens;

Yellow rectangle: Navigation menu area-part of detail screens;
