I am using the Navigation\Tabs (5 tabs) and it looks great on desktop and tablet.
However, on the phone, the tabs result in a horizontal scroll bar for the tabs.
There must be a better way - what is is??
Here is a screenshot of what I am talking about ...
This is a rather common pattern in mobile apps (tabs being scrollable). In mobile devices, the scroll bar itself, is done in overlay with the app, so it does not occupy screen space - e.g. tags in Play Store (and before that, tabs).
The screenshot that you have was taken in desktop.
Let me know if this answers to your question.

Thanks Ruben ... I see what you mean.
On the simulator, you get the ugly side-scrolling bar ... BUT ... when I look at it on an actual phone, a simply side-swipe allows the user to see the tabs.
So, in short, I am going with this approach - the side-swipe is actually pretty nice!
Awesome Bruce! Good to know! :)
