Tab bar
« on: March 02, 2011, 12:58:55 pm »
Hi iVera,

Great app!

Feature request: make the tab bar swipeable instead of having the More tab so you can just swipe it left or right and all the various categories would be in there. The More screen kind of breaks the look and feel of the app and makes those categories feel less important somehow, whereas the real problem really is that there is no more room in the tab bar.

(You'd have to redesign/rethink the way the user gets to customize the order of which everything appears in the tab bar, if you implement this request.)

Hello oTi@,

Thanks for the suggestion, although not following Apple's Human Interface Guidelines which describe using the More controller (similar to iPod, iTunes, YouTube apps), I don't think they would reject it either. Could be something interesting to look into.

Probably can't use the Tab bar, but perhaps make your own horizontal scroll bar to achieve it.

At any rate, looking forward to the iPad version; more room there.  :)
