    How to hide Safari's toolbar and address bar in iPad web app?

    Hi Folks,

    I wonder how to hide the toolbar and address bar that shows when launching a iPad web app on the iPad? My web app works well on the iPad testing via Dashcode/MobileMe; rotation as well. I also have the icon saved on the iPad screen (a simple "Save to my Home Screen").

    Thank you. Much appreciated.

    Frank

    Not possible I believe...but with the atomic web browser app which supports gestures...you can use a 3finger tap to hide the tool/address bar.


    Ohhh and welcome to the forums...

    I've seen web apps that do this, but it is something that happens when the app adds itself to the iPad's home screen when you purchase/add it to the home screen from a web app store. It must be part of the app's coding, because the user can't remove the address/tool bar. Only the Bookmarks bar can be hidden.

    The answer is:


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

    I reported the idiot and Tim toasted all his posts and banned him. You can report spam by clicking the icon next to the person icon on the lower-right of each post. It's quicker than hoping a moderator sees your post on a thread.

    The only way to get rid of the toolbar in Safari, is to jailbreak the iPad and download an app in Cydia called "fullscreen safari". I believe the app is $1.99. I use it on my iPhone 4 and it has been worth every penny for me.
