Placement of Navigation

The content should always be displayed towards the top, and the links to navigate to the other pages placed under the content. On iOS devices the placement is limited by the guidelines. On Android devices it is usually a mistake to place too many menu items on the screen as Android users have a dedicated button for that. This principle is however not followed even by Google who in Gmail place the annoying buttons right on the page.
