User Interface trends for mobile device apps

One of the more successful trends within UI design for mobile device apps is having the navigation menu along the bottom of the screen instead of the top. One result of this type of layout is that it causes the user to take notice of all the content before being asked what it is they would like to do. It is a beneficial aspect of app design for those applications where the content is the main draw for users more so than the features, which means this UI Design approach has made inroads into a large number of smartphone applications.
