Bookmark – Options menu
It works like this:
The user presses the ‘menu’ hard key…
… and the options menu slides into the screen, in which the option to make favorite is included.
Upon tapping the ‘Favorite’ option, the item is added to a list of favorites.
A toast message (optional, but recommended) confirms this.
The option to save or bookmark content can be added to your app when it is likely that users want to get back to this content in a certain amount of time, without having to think where they put it. E.g. all browsers have options to bookmark web pages. Often browsers support multiple ways to add bookmarks. It is wise though to have the bookmarking option in the options menu always available, because users will probably look for the possibility there.
- Because users are familiar with the concept of bookmarking on the web, they probably will look for that option in the options menu intuitively
- The user has to find out that the option is available
