Mobile Screen Archetypes

In mobile application development, mobile apps tend to adhere to a set of standard screen “archetypes” that appear again and again. There are over a dozen screen archetypes but there are six core archetypes that appear in nearly every app:

  • Login / Register - User signs up or logs into their account
  • Stream - User can scroll through important resources in a list
  • Detail - User can view the specifics of a particular resource
  • Creation - User can create a new resource
  • Profile - User can view their identity and stats
  • Settings - User can configure app options
