I'm trying to follow Material Design as best as possible, and I think on one page of the guidelines it says not to use nested tabs. But I'm finding it pretty difficult to find an alternative.
In my scenario the home tab has a feed for both "Upcoming" and "Popular" items, which seems best laid out in tabs to me. The top 3 tabs on the other hand have varying degrees of importance -- the first is the most important, the second is sort of, and the third one is the least important (just overflow with Settings, "About" etc).
Then I also have a pull up map--only visible for the two nested tabs--on the bottom that displays the items shown from these tabs in a map (its location also sort of against material design since it interferes with navigation button accessibility).
There doesn't seem to be enough space for the content, and the issue is sort of in two parts:
The nested tabs
The bottom map
I thought of putting the tabs in a navigation drawer, which would be okay, but that wouldn't increase the space for content since I'd have to put a hamburger button on top of the tabs anyways.
I thought of making the map a tab, but that wouldn't be good since this is a
ViewPager and the swipe would interfere with the map.
Not sure what else I could try doing...
