Hi Marmalade team,
We are currently evaluating Marmalade for developing a non-game application. One thing that we have noticed is that the status bar of the device does not show- this is an important feature for non-game apps. From searching this forum, I found that this has been an issue and the only solution is to develop an iOS EDK which will require one to be a Mac developer (and also means that this feature is only on iOS).
Since I am not able to find anything in these forums, I have to ask if there is any way the status bar of the device can be shown while the app is running. I saw a post as long ago as 2010 (http://www.madewithmarmalade.com/devnet/forum/questions-after-evaluating-airplay-sdk-3) saying this can be added to Marmalade but I don't think this has been done. I will like to know if this feature is available or when it can be expected.
