Hide Address Bar


Does ionic have a way to hide the address bar of the browser (for smart phones)?

adding this

<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes" />

works on iPhones when app is saved to Home Screen

Doesn’t look like a simple thing to implement


Hey @ajmercer, for a browser app, no, I don’t think there is any way to do that, though there might be a way soon: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/105589/is-it-possible-to-hide-the-address-bar-and-status-bar-in-ios-7-safari


added this to my template - ready for IOS 7.1

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=1024, minimal-ui”>

Looks like it is supported on Andriods


Any news or intention about adding this feature? the window.scrollTo(0,0), doesn’t work because of how the global scaffolding layout is done. Maybe there is some workaround that.
