    You may or may not be able to access this app -- Footy Live by Sportsmate Technologies Pty Ltd, but these guys make beautiful apps, and they've come up with a nice way to handle 8 tab bar items without using the standard overflow treatment.

    They basically insert a small handle on the right hand edge of the screen within the tab bar which signals the ability to swipe the tab bar to the left to reveal a second selection of 5, or in their case 3, items.

    Like everyone else has pointed out, however, this usage should still definitely be a last resort. Reducing and economizing the architecture should still definitely be your initial focus.
