With the changes to the status bar in iOS 7 there are many instances when things don’t look right due to an app not being created to work with a clear status bar. I’ve mentioned a tutorial on customizing the navigation/status bar in iOS 7, but that doesn’t really help if you don’t want to go through the bother of creating a custom background image.
Nick Jensen has create a nice example and explanation of how you can set up a UICollectionView and taking a screenshot of the background you can make it so that your main view nicely fades in behind the status bar which is based on the background using a gradient mask.
You can read more about thow this is done over on Nick’s blog.
And the example code showing how to do this can be found on Github here.
A nice easy way to make your content slide underneath the status bar while keeping the clear look.
