List of FAQ

I run a PhoneGap application in iOS7 and the status bar overlays my NavBar. Why?

According to the official iOS7 design guidelines, the iOS7 status bar should be transparent and always visible. The Hybrid UI allows this by using the statusBarStyle option of the Application set to black-transparent. If you still wish to use the old black non-transparent status bar style, change it through the PhoneGap XCode project's plist.

My TabStrip looks different on different versions of the iOS or even between iPad and iPhone. Why?

The Hybrid UI framework tries to match the native look of several iOS platform versions and devices. Thus, some widgets look slightly different on iOS 5 versus iOS 6. Additionally, tablet and phone styling is slightly different too. If you want to have the same styling on all iOS devices, choose the one you want and force it through the Application platform option.
