I can't make PrettyTabBar translucent. Even using iOS 5 appearance method witch works with UITabBar.
Can you add a screenshot with a translucent UITabBar, using iOS 5 as you say?
[[UITabBar appearance] setTintColor:[[UIColor alloc] initWithRed:0 green:0 blue:0 alpha:0.2]];
Thanks. PrettyTabBar can't be translucent right now. @echoz and I are currently working on some nice improvements on PrettyTabBar. You can join us to add this translucency feature. Take a look at the tabbar branch: https://github.com/vicpenap/PrettyKit/tree/tabbar and also to the issue #12.
