We'll have to add this to DN. Hate seeing the Safari UI whenever I hit the homepage icon I have for it.
You can also add these meta tags to make it a 'web-app' which removes all the safari chrome when something is added to your home screen.
It has some rough edges, ux-wise, but it's a decent solution:
Edit: And this works right now, as opposed to the main post which is a dev build for now
anyone able to verify that this works? I don't notice any change on a regular pageload. It works once someone has added it to the homescreen, but that already worked to begin with. Anyone?
If I understand correctly, this works in the new dev preview for iOS 7, which means it isn't in the public release yet.
Ahhhh, that would make more sense.
I gave it a try locally via the Xcode simulator and it works beautifully. The interesting (and I think awesome) part is that the UI never seems to show, like currently when you scroll down and then do a quick jerk back upwards it shows. You have to actually tap the menu bar to get the UI back.
Wow. This is such good news. I'm really glad that Apple made the time to fix this.
