Status Barred for Mac
If there ever was an application that would fit in the proverbial one trick pony category, Craig Walton’s Status Barred is definitely the one. That’s not to say that it isn’t great at what it does, but quite the opposite.
Status Barred is a lightweight and drag and drop based little OS X app that aims to help you get rid of the status bar in your iOS screenshots, quickly and easily.
And, from what we’ve been able to test, Status Barred does exactly that and nothing more. It makes performing this task as easy as flicking your mouse to drop the screenshot you want to edit and clicking a button.
If you are wondering why you should do it in the first place then you should ask Apple why it asks developers to remove it before submitting their iOS apps’ screenshots to its iTunes Connect service.
Moreover, Status Barred comes with built-in support for iPad, iPhone and iPod screenshots, in both portrait and landscape orientations, regardless of them being grabbed on Retina or non-Retina iOS devices.
Furthermore, if you don’t choose from Status Barred’s main window to automatically overwrite output images, you can set its default behavior from the Preferences window with “Replace”, “Append _cropped to file name”, “Don’t save” and “Ask” being the possible choices.
Everything considered, Status Barred is the perfect solution for any developer who want to effortlessly prepare his iOS app’s screenshots before uploading them to Apple’s iTunes Connect.
