Show the Status bar always

Hello,

Is there a way to leave the status bar on at all times? I like to know how much battery I have left as well as see my signal.

Yep... That would be a plus for me... Knowing what time is it is also a decisive factor when it comes to that "just a few more pages" moment...

Eventually, I'll be making the toolbars sticky (I have to be honest, given the number of feature requests I have, it might take a while). Your device should show you a warning when the battery is running low.

It only takes 2 seconds to tap, take a look, and resume reading.

Very true but... I just happen to like being able to see the time and battery life all the time. I just want to be able to look up at a glance and then get back to reading.

A minor update but one that I would appreciate.

You can pull the information down from inside the app in iOS7 but if you arent updating to that, could be useful. Personally I prefer not to have that distraction, I'm already easily distracted when reading!

This seems to be a really frequent wish (though not mine!), see over on GitHub:

Marvin has a built-in timer, but, unfortunately, it is not usable for me:
