More Information
This plugin offers two options for customizing your tabbar. The first one is for replacing the center tab with a custom image that is larger than the rest, extending above the height of the tabbar. (See screenshot 1). The second option is for a scrollable tabbar (see screenshot 2 and 3). With the second option, an optional background image can be applied. Also, each tab can have a different highlighted color when it is selected.

Note: On the scrollable tabbar option, screen rotations are prevented for the entire app.

Note 2: THIS SCREEN SHOULD BE SET AS THE SCREEN FOR THE FIRST TAB IN YOUR LAYOUT SETTINGS

Note 3: This plugin does not play well with the Thumb Viewer Plugin. There is no known workaround at this time.
