By default, the sliding transition direction is determined by the view stack (and if the user is going back or forth) and not by the invoking tab locations. However, such logic can be implemented using click handlers and custom view transitions (docs).
Can you please point us to an native application which behaves in the way you describe? I would like to examine this behavior in details.
Thank you in advance,
the Telerik team
