[Mobile][Search] Menu and Search UI/UX Tweaks

Recently, I've been frustrated with the fact that when searching for a song on the Spotify app, I have to scroll through ALL of the categories to find the one I am looking for. Also, trying to search for things one-handed in the app is very difficult, because the search bar appears at the top fo the screen. Holding a phone and clicking into that search bar with one hand is difficult, no matter how large your hands are. Well, I decided to redesign the app, and get rid of the menu bar and replace it with an expandable menu in order to make room for a category filter during searches. I'm not sure about the new menu, but the filtered searches would be wonderful.

This is absolutely gorgeous.

Please Spotify, consider some of these ideas for a redesign.

The "revamped menu" is bad. Something so simple and basic that took me one click before, now takes two. Multiply by 20 for every time I have to do it during the day and you get complete horseshіt.

 

Also instead of moving the search bar down, you can just have the keyboard open by default when clicking the search icon.

Also the "revamped menu" is not working well for left-handers!

@clemens_ul this could have a right or left hand option

 

@sillyduck It actually takes one and a gesture towards your selected choice. Opening the keyboard would be fine, but it would obscure most of my recent searches and still make it necessary to reach up to the top half of the screen if I wanted to access those!

I'd like to say I like the idea of the advanced search with filters and dropdowns, I'd totally vote for that!

 

What I dislike is the "revamped menu". I like to be able to click back and forth really quickly between options where as your way is just extra. Additionally the menu bar doesn't take up much space to begin with so theres no point condensing it.

 

I also dislike the search bar  in the middle of the screen, theres too much dead space plus it makes the past search list shorter and over all just unnecessary. If you're really worried about using you phone with one hand get a smaller phone as every single app I know has the search bar at the top of the screen.
