Hi,

I'm more of a UI guy than UX and I'm designing a simple app.

A two dropdown system would save clicks but are they a good practice?

Something doesn't feel intuitive about it.

Just wondering other's thoughts on the matter.

The first time I read this I missed that you said app. Consider using app tabs at the bottom of the screen instead of a hamburger menu if possible. They are easier to tap because they are easier to reach and expose more options (that people can always see).   Check out these articles:   https://lmjabreu.com/post/why-and-how-to-avoid-hamburger-menus/   https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1945

I've seen websites that have multiple levels in their site nav. Having too many levels can be bad, but 2 levels deep should not too complex, as long as it's intuitive to follow.
