I've been experimenting with an expanding / contracting right hand navigation structure on a project... with the capacity to have to children (shown here).
I'm expecting a little push back from y'all... feedback is welcome, good or bad.
Thanks for taking a peek!

I don't really get the nesting. Seems like the right menu is coming from inside that one icon that's highlighted, but it's ambiguous and a bit confusing because it says android with an iphone icon next to it.. But maybe it makes more sense in the context of actually interacting with it
Although this moment looks fantastic, I can imagine a disconnect in the hierarchy.
If i understand this correctly, you have the darkest area fixed to the right, you open it up and it reveals lighter areas which are now the right most items. In this interaction you are losing your visual weight on the right side. It may feel off because the heaviest visual element is also the one with the most motion as it will be sliding the greatest distance.
Also, for me I think it would make more sense to put the arrow on the dark area as that is the anchor/handle for this drawer.
Maybe just flip some of the colors around?
I could have also completely misunderstood this interaction :)
@Anand Sharma @Henry Modisett -- Great feedback guys, thank you. I'm still playing with it, but the children shown here slide in from the right, contracting the left hand main nav titles leaving only the icons..... scary, I know :) The main nav (to the left) is all clicks (no hovers) to get to a list of their children....
Nice! Looks pretty straight forward to me.
Cool. Like the UI
what font do you use here? :)
I really agree with @Anand Sharma, the labeling of the category with an iPhone icon and then nested inside is "For Android" as an option seems a bit strange. I don't know what the solution could be except to use a more generic smart phone icon so that it covers all the bases.
tablet? desktop? responsive?
@Jonathan Bowden yup, desktop / tablet / responsive-ish... :)

You're probably sick of looking at this by now I'm sure... but I'm polishing this up some. May end up having the secondary nav cover up the main nav to avoid any confusion. I think animation could probably solve it... but either way... yea...
