Improvements when address bar is at top one-handed

The users who we observed touching their phone’s screens or buttons held their phones in three basic ways:

  • one-handed — 49%
  • cradled — 36%
  • two-handed — 15%

A one-handed User Interface is important because it can turn potential visitors into buyers as it facilitates interactions between the user and the application.

UI is quite an intricate field that involves anticipating the user preferences and then creating an interface that understands and fulfills the preferences. The UI not only focuses on aesthetics but also maximizes responsiveness, efficiency, and accessibility of a website.

It can transform into a contextual action bar.
