The App I am working on has a Visual Force tab , which I would like it to show automatically on salesforce1. Currently the tab would show only when I go to Setup > Mobille Administration > Manage Mobile Navigation Menu and then select the app's tab into the selected list.

I have also tried setting the tab's meta.xml file with these two options true false

but doesn't seem to take into effect! Is there was of making this tab available without having to set it up manually?

You can enable Visualforce pages for Salesforce1 through the metadata API by editing the isAvailableInTouch field on the ApexPage object.
