Status Magis adds perfect status bars to your iOS App Store screenshots

About Status Magic

Unfortunately, Status Magic has been discontinued. Find out why in this blog post.

You've invested hundreds of hours crafting your iOS app to make it perfect in every way. Don't make a crucial mistake with the best marketing tool you have, your screenshots.

Status Magic is an application for adding perfect status bars to your iOS App Store screenshots. Import screenshots from your iOS device and Status Magic will either overlay a clean status bar on top or allow you to easily remove the status bar all together.

Your app should be the centre of attention on your screenshots, not the status bar. You should make sure the status bars are free of any distractions which means no carrier text, no alarms, no in-progress spinner and a fully charged battery. Also add extra polish by matching the iconic time '9:41 AM' that Apple uses in all their iOS promotional material.

All configurations of iOS devices are supported, both retina and non-retina, portrait and landscape orientations. Each screenshot is automatically inspected to determine the type and orientation so all that is left to do is pick which default icons should be shown and click Export. Simple!

Status Magic supports both iOS 6 and the new iOS 7 style status bars.
