Remove tabs from ionic app

Hi all,
I’ve started playing around with Ionic using the Tabs template.
I ended up developing my app in the middle tab section.
Now, I realize I don’t need to other tabs. In fact, I don’t even want the tab footer bar anymore.
I just want the middle tab to be loaded without the tab menu.
I’ve tried adding ion-nav-view name=tab-chats to my index.html, but this breaks the app.

Any ideas?
