Ion-tab on-hold?


I’m trying to figure out how to do either a “press and hold” or “double tap” action on an ion-tab, but can’t seem to figure out an elegant way of pulling it off. I’d think the gestures like on-hold and on-double-tap would work, but no such luck.

My current idea is resulting back to a jquery like solution, but would much rather use an angular way. Any ideas?
