Hi Christopher !

It is a design decision not to have tabs in Sailfish. Depending on the role of your tabs, 
you can use a pulley or attached page.

If you have an important page (like a main page) + several less important pages 
(help, settings), better use a pulley-menu[1] to access these pages.

If you have several pages that have the same importance (different tabs representing 
eg weather in different countries or cities) you can add a tab selector in an attached 
page, and display the correct page when clicking on the tab in the attached page[2].
