It works like this:
After a certain trigger (button click, item selection, etc)
A sticky container will slide from any side of the screen to a certain centered position in order to get the visual focus of the user. It’ll remain stuck to any of the side of the screens.
This container shall be dismissible/closable by swiping it away or optionally by tapping in any empty space within it.
An accessory container to show extra information is needed and a new view / activity is too much or undesired interaction. Works best if the content in the layer is low in complexity.
- Easy to use
- Better interaction experience
- Context remains visible
- When the content is too complex it might be overwhelming
- Ways to dismiss the layer might not be obvious without explanation
