Is it ok to have TabBar in Modal view in iOS UI (iPhone)?
I have a "Select Contact" view in my app and I plan to make it as modal view. But "Select Contact" is a set of views: "Favourites", "Contacts" (Address book list) and "Keyboard" (to dial number manually).
There is no restriction - "Select Contact" could be part of navigation controller, but as far as I know a TabBar inside a navigation controller is considered bad practice.
Common practice is that tabbar is the root contoller. So I'm not sure can I use it in modal view.
Currently I see two options:
- Modal view with TabBar
- View on main navigation stack with segmented buttons in the navigation bar (but here I think it is more used for filtering table view results)
Do you have such experience?
