Open Source: Library Allowing For Tab Bars With An Infinite Number Of Items

The standard UITabbar on the iPhone is limited to displaying five items at once, and if you would like to give the user the option of more tab bar items those extra items will be typically selected through the more screen.

I’ve come across a library that allows you to add an infinite number of times to the tab bar, and rather than use the more screen allows for easy switching between multiple tab bars holding all the items. This library is great because you can select specific items on the tab bar even if they’re not visible, and scroll between the tab bars in an animated fashion.

You can find an extensive example project included in the library source code which can be found on Github here:

Looks like a great library for those times when the more button on the tab bar just doesn’t make sense.
