Understanding Tab Bar Controllers

The second type of view controller that we work with in this hour is the tab bar controller (UITabBarController). Tab bar controllers, like navigation controllers, are prominently featured in a wide range of iOS applications. As the name implies, a tab bar controller presents a series of “tabs” at the bottom of the screen, represented as icons and text, that can be touched to switch between scenes. Each scene represents a different function in the application or a unique way of viewing the application’s information.

The Phone application on the iPhone, for example, presents different ways of sorting your calls using a tab bar controller, as shown in Figure 13.5.
