Well, you might find it interesting that if I put Scrivener and Safari side by side on my latest iPad Pro model it looks like this:

Neither app uses the "full screen".

So it appears that not even Apple has ”fixed” this. ;)

* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

If you read just three posts upthread, you'll see that it is Scrivener that is forcing other apps to also implement the bar.

Yes, if I was not clear earlier in the thread, this is something that will be fixed along with several other things in the next update. We very rarely put out single issue fixes immediately—and when we do it is for major issues that cause Scrivener to fail to launch for a large majority of users, or some such.

Thanks for the screenshots all. It strikes me that if in another universe everyone was told this was how iOS was supposed to look, it would actually probably be considered a nice look, ha. It certainly doesn’t look broken, they clearly put effort into how it works, with bevelled corners and such. Like I say, I think it even looks nice. Just to be clear I am idly musing upon the psychology of fashion design here, not remarking on whether or not we’ll fix it. :)

Really? Because in my experience, paying any amount for an app, unless it's a subscription, gives me no expectation that I am paying for anything other than app *in the current state it is in*.

And even if it *is* a subscription, I have no expectation that the devs will prioritize their bugfixes and feature updates in a way that is pleasing to me.

This has been my experience since back in the early days of computer BBSs, when you used to have to pay to get updated versions of software.
