This is kinda nifty: Feel like using the status bar for … well … status, like this,
or to bring down a detail view?
What you need then is MTStatusBarOverlay on github!
This class provides a custom iOS (iPhone + iPad) status bar overlay window known from Apps like Reeder, Google Mobile App or Evernote. It currently supports touch-handling, queuing of messages, delegation as well as three different animation modes:
- MTStatusBarOverlayAnimationShrink: When the user touches the overlay the overlay shrinks and only covers the battery-icon on the right side
- MTStatusBarOverlayAnimationFallDown: When the user touches the overlay a detail view falls down where additional information can be displayed. You can get a history of all your displayed messages for free by enabling historyTracking!
- MTStatusBarOverlayAnimationNone: Nothing happens, when the user touches the overlay
