Maximize iPhone UI Screen

Some iphone developers skip this step. To make your app appear professional, I would highly recommend this tiny step. Maximize the portrait screen by hidding the status bar is a small investment with greater return in User Experience. It is ugly to show the battery and time on certain applications.
Under Resource folder, you can add a new item to Info.plist. Enter a new Key “UIStatusBarHidden”. Right click the select ValueType: Boolean. You may have to highlight the entire row on UIStatusBarHidden to activate the proper right-click menu. Click the check box. You are done. This is that simple.
