I am happy to tell you that bringing back the status bar is planned as part of the next update. When iOS 7 came out some changes were made which were not communicated to us that impacted sizing of the screen -- this resulted in the status bar no longer showing. We have gotten several requests to bring it back so we are working on it. We will let you know when the new update is planned to be released.

We have submitted this update to the App store and expect it to go live within 10-12 days.
