tmControls Tab object on Android

Hi Roger:

None of the controls has ever been developed/tested against Android, only
iOS.  What's likely happening is there is some platform/environment
detection going on that may be finding "mobile" but not finding expected
iOS-specific properties.

Did you receive the recent newsletter sent out about tmControl?  If you
haven't seen it, most everything is being rebuilt, and the big push for
tmControl 2 is iOS 7.

If I get a chance over the holidays, I'll try to take a look at what's
happening on Android.

Happy Holidays,
