Spotify Brings Back the Tab Bar on iOS

Federico Viticci:

The good news today is that the classic tab bar is back in style at Spotify. Starting today, the company is rolling out a redesigned navigation experience on the iPhone (pictured above) with five tabs across the bottom – Home, Browse, Radio, Library, and Search in the middle.

This is a huge UI upgrade. I'm not as anti-hamburger as some folks, and I think that there are situations where it is the right high level navigation choice. But Spotify absolutely needs a tab bar.
