It is possible to change the default 4 tabs interface of your AppstronautMe app
 
 
by editing app.xml file of your app, to a minimum 2 tabs and maximum 5 tabs
interface. (Note: supported on iPhone, Android platforms)
 
To add the 5th tab:
1. On Edit Pages 
create a new page with the name "tab5.html"
 
 
This will add necessary <page id="" /> tag to app.xml.
 
<page 

id="tab5.html" type="html" transition="" slidepageid="" slidetransition="slide"hasreviews="no" hassend="no" hasfields="no" topad="no" bottomad="no" topadtype="none"bottomadtype="none" dynamicdata="false" jsonurl="" hasreviewhtmlkey="no" />

 
2. In the app.xml file
add the following tag
 
<

template tabsnumber="5" />

 
where "5" (or 2,3,4,5) is the number of tabs to be displayed in your app.
 
3. In the app.xml file
add <prop id="" >...</props> tags to specify text and icon for tab5.
 

<prop id="tab5text" title="Tab5 Text">5th tab</prop>

<prop id="tab5icon" title="Tab5 Icon">95-equalizer.png</prop>

 
On Design Properties page
it will be possible to edit tab text and select preferred icon.  
 
 
 
Preview the new interface of your app via Seattle Clouds previewer app 
 
 
(Note: the web simulator displays the 4 tabs interface only).
---
 
To remove tabs:
In the app.xml file edit the tag
 

<template tabsnumber=

"2" />

 
where "2" (or 3) is the number of tabs to be displayed in your app.
 
Preview the new interface of your app via the previewer app
 
or
 
 
(Note: The web simulator displays the 4 tabs interface only).
