Uncaught Error loading ionTabs

I started a “blank” project and now I’m trying to use ionTabs

I’ve tried using module(['ionic','ionTabs']) but I get the errors

Error: [$injector:modulerr] Failed to instantiate module ionTabs due to:

How do I implement using from a blank starter app project?

excluding ‘ionTabs’ in the module code gives me

Error: [$compile:ctreq] Controller ‘ionTabs’, required by directive ‘ionTabNav’, can’t be found!

Apparently this post solves the issue.
