While there's no single navigation design that works for every app, there are principles and guidelines to help you decide the right design for your app.

Principles of good navigation

Let's start with the basic principles of good navigation design:

1. Simplicity

Fewer navigation items simplify decision making for users. Providing easy access to important destinations and hiding less important items will help users get where they want, faster.

2. Clarity

Clear paths allow for logical navigation for users. Making navigation options obvious and clarifying relationships between pages should prevent users from getting lost.
