How to Get Users to Swipe Content on Mobile Screens

Visual Cue Visibility

One of the most effective techniques for displaying content on mobile screens is to use bleeding edges. With a small and limited screen, you have to use all the space you got.

Bleeding edges allow content to bleed through the screen edges to maximize space. When users see this visual cue, it signifies more content to be revealed. However, users may miss it and fail to swipe for more content if you don’t design it correctly.
