comment Alternatives to More Tab Button in a UITabBar?
I completely agree with you on simplification, it's just that the problem domain is rather large. This simplification process is a on-going battle. Trust me. :)

comment Alternatives to More Tab Button in a UITabBar?
Alright, so coming back to this problem, I decided to take our application to a design review at WWDC. It was interesting that the Apple designer took the same approach as you did by wanting to collapse like-functionality to reduce the amount of items on the UITabBar. The golden quote she gave was: "If it's ugly, that means that we don't want you to use it." But, as you also mention, collapsing only goes so far and I don't think with the amount of items that will be needed in the future that this approach will work. I think we need a whole new navigation paradigm.
