ScrollView does not scroll to top on status bar press

On iPhone, the scroll-to-top gesture has no effect if there is more than one scroll view on-screen that has scrollsToTop set to true. Since it defaults to true in ReactNative, you have to set scrollsToTop={false} on your ScrollView inside Menu component in order to get it working as desired.
