Information’s extracted from Mobile Design Pattern Gallery: UI Patterns for Mobile Applications, I recommend you to read this book because has a lot of great content.
“Good navigation, like good design, is invisible.”
Use grid layout for items of equal importance, or an irregular layout to emphasize some items more than others.
Common layouts are 3×3, 2×3, 2×2, 1×2
Old versions but it’s showing great details about this pattern.
Profile information can be added.
Works well for long titles or those that require sub text. All internal screens should offer an option for returning to List Menu.
Tabs navigation is not OS neutral since each OS has their own guidelines for tab location and design.
Surfaces individual pieces of content for navigation (articles, recipes, photos or products) can be arranged in a carousel, grid or slideshow.
Works great for frequently updated content.
