    Discussion regarding placement of tab bar in iOS app
    the Tab bar component in iOS is at the bottom by default and the api does not give any way to put the tab bar at the top.
    All the iOS apps that currently put their tab bar at top implement it in a custom way either using a component called UISegmentedView or custom view placements
    Most of the apps on the app store have the tab bar at bottom as that is the standard use case and users are used to using it
    as of now, in the yellr iOS app, I have put the tab bar at the top using the UISegmentedControl so that the design is in sync with the Android version (as tab bar placement is at the top for Android apps by default)
    and this is not the case for iOS apps
    So do we go with the standard iOS flow (tab bar at bottom) or want to have same UI for the Yellr app across all platforms?

    hey
    So i believe the twitter app for iOS puts it a the bottom
    we should follow the design recommendations (and standards) of the OS

    Yes from iOS 7 onwards Twitter ios started doing the bottom tabs. Prior to that it was a custom tab I suppose.
    Then, I will move the tab bar to the bottom for the Yellr iOS app

    yup, i think that makes sense
    whatever you think is most in-line with what other apps are doing

    Regarding Image sizes - cropping and resizing on the device is a memory intensive process. What would be more desirable is the device sends a width,height parameter in the request and the response would have the requested image in the requested dimensions cropped away right from the server.

    ahh, so there is already a cheat!
    you can add p to the end of the file name ( before the extension ) and get a smaller version of the image
    I can add that to the response if you would like
