Smart Phone 'information bar' at top of phone never shows when a PowerApp is open.

For any app I have on my phone (Android/Droid Turbo), the 'information bar' (for lack of a better description) always shows no matter where you are in the app.


When any PowerApp is loaded, the information bar *never* shows at all. The PowerApp screens take up the entire vertical length of the phone screen.

What am I missing ?



PS ... this is very annoying.

Hi @mx,


Thanks for the feedback.

I think this is a default behavior (if you mean the battery usage, time and signal).

If you would like the "information bar " to be shown when App loads in PowerApps Mobile, then please consider submit this as a feature request.

"(if you mean the battery usage, time and signal)" Yes exactly. Respectfully ... since every real app that I have ever loaded (many) shows the bar, I should not have to request this as a 'feature'. As I see it, this is a bug, or at a minimum a serious oversight. Please report this as a bug or oversight. Please don't put the burden on me to request a 'feature' that should already be standard. Thank you ...
