    Is it possible to change the color of the status bar text?  I'm not sure if that's what it's called but it's the text at the top that has the time and the battery level.  I see that we can now control the background but the text seems to stay a dark gray or black.

    Hi Kjell,

    Unfortunately, the only available colors you can choose between are black and white. They can be set by setting a default or a light style status bar. For this, you can use the StatusBar custom plugin as described here. Please, refer to the plugin documentation for the available methods. Make sure to call them within the deviceready event handler. With the plugin, you can even enable the deprecated BlackTnraslucent and BlackOpaque status bar style.

    Please, note that you can only test this plugin on a physical device. You cannot test it in the simulator or in Icenium Ion.
