Week 3

Hamburger Icon

Session 1: One of the most common techniques for improving the mobile web application user experience is to show/hide the universal navigation with a simple menu, or “hamburger” icon. This is a very simple technique that uses a combination of CSS3 media queries and JavaScript. In today’s demo we’ll look at this technique as well as explore more examples of how to apply jQuery Mobile features to our work in progress.

Session 2: After our Google-Fu discussion and mockup critiques let’s continue demonstrations using jQuery Mobile. Specifically today it will be important to have a functional, responsive navigation system in place. In order to do this we will have significant changes to the CSS across our media query breakpoints. A responsive slide out panel might be the best way to achieve this.
