Tabs are a great way to separate content in your interface, and Apple’s tab controls do a great job, but aren’t really suitable for all situations.

Here are a couple of controls for imitating the conventional tab style found in desktop apps, and a control based on the tab selectors in the iOS 6 app store.

1. BrowserTabView – A very versatile component that can be easily customized.
