Consistency in Mobile Navigation

Any thoughts to share on tips for designing a consistent navigation // 'Mobile First' approach?... Basing a site on business context/business needs. Keeping the navigation at the top of the page on EVERY page..vs. allowing it to drop to the foot in order to present the more prominent data...?Thoughts?

Be consistent with navigation you don't want your users to lose their way on the site by suddenly moving it, if you do make sure the animation is very deliberate and they can easily find it again.

Also, take a look at the standard responsive menu patterns. http://bradfrost.github.io/this-is-responsive/patterns.html#navigation

The use of a "Return to Top of Page" button. Yay? Nay?

To me, it seems lazy, though sometimes useful....

Thanks for the feedback, Chris These patterns are a great resource.
