Quick question, Whats the difference between actionbar and tabhost. I used to use tabhost and add tabs to it.
Then I was asked to use actionbar and reading about it, it seems it is just another way of having tabs. So when would use each? Whats the difference
Pretty simple: ActionBar is the replacement of TabHost since Android 3.0.
Moreover, ActionBar can do more things than TabHost (like logo as a button, spinners, actions buttons…).
Have a look to ActionBar documentation on Android design guidelines.
