In the interview, here is what Todd Hamilton had to say further “One of the challenges I ran into was what to do about tabs.’ The iPhone and iPad has tabs across the bottom of the screen. A normal tab view across the bottom wasn’t going to work so I came up with a simple drop down control in the title bar, Tapping this would display a popover menu showing the other available pages. I also purposely left out several of the controls like Edit and Add Contact. On a device this small I think it makes more sense to manage apps, contacts, and media from a synced iPhone or Mac.”
