Are tabs as a pattern good for mobile design? How do they affect an app’s usability?

What kind of app are you working on?

Let’s set two facets in this answer:

  1. Trend – are tabs being used in Android and iOS mobile apps?

    Yes, as evidenced in popular mobile apps (Quora, for example).

  2. Nature – can tabs function well in limited spaces?

    Yes, it is implemented in a single row which can also accommodate an overflow of tab items within a horizontal scrollable container or a sub–menu of overflown items.

Tabs perfectly facilitate the navigability of a mobile app’s sections.
