View your Personal THUMB ZONE area

Implementing a Mobile Navigation Menu with a Thumb Zone Friendly User Experience (UX) is the MOST CRITICAL AND DIFFICULT area to master.

Josh Clarke's research on How We Hold Our Gadgets shows that the Smartphone screen THUMB ZONE Area Changes depending on:

✅ The size of your hand.

✅ The size of your Smartphone screen.

✅ Which hand you use when holding your Smartphone with ONE HAND.
✅ Website developers CAN ONLY DESIGN a Thumb Friendly User Experience

Why use a Mobile Navigation Menu designed with a Thumb Friendly User Experience?

 What percentage of time do you use your Smartphone USING JUST ONE HAND? 

I challenge you to read Steven Hobber research on How Do Users Really Hold Mobile Devices.

New Trends and Statistics

✅ In 2012, large screen Smartphone devices (Phablets) with screen sizes of 5.5 to 7 inches, accounted for just 1 percent of global shipments.

✅ By 2019, Smartphones with screen sizes of 5.5 to 7 inches WILL OUTSELL smaller screen devices!

✅ As the Smartphone screen size increases, if the Navigation Menu is positioned on the top of the screen, it will not be reachable when holding your Smartphone with just ONE HAND!

✅ Website designers and developers can identify their OPTIMAL THUMB ZONE area on large screen Smartphone and, implement a Mobile Navigation Menu that exploits a Thumb Friendly Mobile User Experience(UX)!
