Hmmm... SivaSiva shows/hides the status bar. Checking the launcher app settings, it does have the status bar set to hidden. So based on that, just use the hidden option and show the status bar as required while inside the app. Sent from my iPad > On Oct 12, 2020, at 9:19 PM, scott--- via

Thanks Jacque. Then that IS pretty confusing since the Standalone Application Settings have a “Status Bar” setting and it appears to control the bar at the top of the screen which is what I would expect to match up with the Status Bar on iOS. I guess that will require a feature request… and

That looks interesting but I don’t think it mentioned iPad, and even if they make it for iPad here is a note they mentioned; This will free up storage used by the app, but keep its documents and data. Reinstalling the app will place back your data if the app is still available in the App Store.

I think "status bar" may be a misnomer and it's referring to the three (or two on Android 10) buttons that are always available at the bottom of the screen. Those are the Back, Home, and (sometimes) the Recents buttons. Virtually all Android devices use these "soft buttons" now. I could be

Apple is pushing everything to be saved to iCloud, so a properly written school app (by Apple standards!) would have all the school assignments in the student’s iCloud - accessible at home or school or wherever you have net access. Kelly > On 12Oct, 2020, at 4:09 PM, John Balgenorth via

On the iPad each app is sandboxed and that means each app has its own Documents Folder. You can get a url to the Documents Folder for your app but not other apps. Using that url you can read, write, append, move, and delete files that are in your apps Documents Folder. A BIG PROBLEM comes when

Hi Graham, You can write to your own app’s preference’s folder. Due to sandboxing Apple doesn’t want you writing stuff elsewhere. You can sometimes write to special folders, I don’t know the list off of the top of my head however. Keep us informed of your progress. Rick > On Oct 12, 2020, at

It is my understanding that each app has it’s own storage are and that this is sandboxed from other apps. That being said, there is obviously a way for an app to request permission from the iOS to access another app’s storage. I’m not sure if Livecode has that mechanism though. it’s probably
