Unless Waze can implement some kind of user-selectable option, I can't see that being implemented. I wouldn't hold your breath. Unless you've got massive lung capacity. :mrgreen:

I see.... But why is it necessary to show the status bar? imo it has nothing to do with the app itself. So why don't show some more Waze related info instead of this IOS stuff? Probably the only usable thing is you can see on long drives if some new emails or text messages were coming in if you have your phone in silent mode....
Btw do you know which person i have to ask if this feature is possible in the future?

Most people will want to see it. Battery and time being strong examples. Not like you'd gain a lot of screen real estate by removing it.

If you were on Android you could actually do it via Tasker though.

My personal opinion, I like the status bar (to see my signal strength and the time) especially when driving in areas were coverage may be less. Plus, I don't think there would be much additional "info" available.
I'd be ranked higher if I drove more than 5 miles to work. :-(
But I only have to drive 5 miles to work. :-)

I don't need my battery status when i'm using in my car 'cause my phone is recharging when i drive... Using Waze only on battery is insane 'caus it sucks a lot of battery....
And it can't be that difficult to implement an option for this 'cause some other apps have this opportunity. So you could select your preferable option....

I use it sans charger all the time and I'm pretty sure I'm not insane. :-)
I frequently make short trips (less than 10 miles) and don't take the time to plug in the charger. Why would I even bother running waze for such a short time you ask? To provide feedback for my fellow wazers of course. :D

I'm still wondering if all Wazers need the informations of the IOS status bar while driving around. Why don't see a little bit more of your route or related information of your track? So, probably i'm the only one who thinks this is worth an option.....

I can't find an app on my iPhone 4S that does not display that information. It is likely iOS peeking through and not a matter of an app allowing or disallowing the information.

Most games take over the full screen.
