Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4918) [ios]status bar is overlapping with the view on iOS7
Date Sat, 16 Nov 2013 07:15:23 GMT


Morten Mathiasen commented on CB-4918:

To support that you can use the entire screen for your app content, the status bar needs to
be hidden. Otherwise, you will have to design the UI content to avoid using the top area of
the screen. That is waste of valuable screen space, especially on platforms, e.g. android,
that don't show a status bar.

It is a quite easy fix to hide the status bar on iOS 7 too, e.g. from info-plist:
+       <key>UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance</key>
+       <false/>

Hiding the status bar must be the right solution for Cordova/PhoneGap that provides a cross
browser solution, that should make it possible to design one UI and run it on more platforms.
