On today’s Insivia Insight Colin explains Toggle Navigation and how you can use it for your mobile site.

One idea worth checking out for a mobile website is toggling navigation. Because mobile has a limited amount of space, if you could put where maybe it’s optional or maybe your main navigation hidden off to the side or coming down from the top it really allows you more space to focus on your main content. One good example of this is the new Google maps app for iOS 6. As you can see down here in the bottom right corner there is a little toggle, and if you slide that out you’ve your traffic, public transit, satellite, and Google Earth options. If you click one of those the toggle goes away and my selected option comes up. You can imagine using this same type of feature for your main navigation, or something like optional features, privacy policy, and news.
