My dearest dribbblers,
Céline Andrieu and yours truly, are in the process of redesigning the Tactilize ipad app UI.
We're having a situation.
The fact is, we can't choose between the light bar on dark BG (big here in golrious High Resolution ) or the dark bar on light BG (big here in glorious High Resolution ).
So I'm asking for your contribution here. Left ? Right ?

Right :) Bcoz, the bottom tab needs to be dark maximum as user-centric & you need to pull users to use the tabs...with sharp icons, highlighted texts(even more sharpness needed).
For content area, be with grey/white combo and from there you can play with your visualizations.
(You can grab attention with light bottom tab also but it depends on theme. for this I'll suggest as mentioned :)
Honestly? I'd go with light and light http://cl.ly/KVSV
0 - light bar on dark
Right is really sexy!
Light bar on dark.
+1 light background... I'd make more changes to the dark.
I'm not sure about what this app is all about, but I'd say that your choice should be dictated by the content. If it is text-centric, go with a white content area and dark bar to better isolate the former. If it is media-centric (which seems to be the case), your best bet is to stick with a dark background. The bar color matters less in this case (images can fend for themselves better than monochrome text), but I'd go with a dark bar as well since everything should be subdued in favor of the media content itself.

Right, this dark bar is so much better!
Both looks great. I'd say that once I've seen the tab bar, it can fade away so I can focus on the content. The one on the right does that better coz shit's dark.
