Smart Statusbar allows you to open your status bar even when you've launched full-screen apps
Too long we were waiting for this app. Imagine this situation: you're playing your favorite Android game when suddenly a notification sound and your phone vibrate. Yes, you received a message or email but if you want to know what is it about, you'll have to quit the app and then swipe the status bar. Smart Statusbar comes to end this situation up.
That's it, Smart Statusbar is a statusbar enabler for full screen app. Whenever you are using full screen app but still want to know info such as time battery or email, jut do a finger swipe from top of screen to re enable statusbar. That easy... but what a useful app!
From settings you can enable/disable status bar, enable/disable it to start on boot, set a timeout when Android native statusbar will be hidden atuomatically, touch vibration feedback or even upgrade to the pro version which enable advanced tools in a secondary statusbar panel.
In a few words, a feature we were waiting for, an app that makes things easier. Highly recommendable.
Smart Statusbar is the first and only Status bar enabler in full screen app. You can now reveal status bar in any Full screen app with gesture.
Imagine you are watching movie and you want to know what time it is, with Smart Statusbar you can do a finger swipe as you were trying to expand status bar on top of the screen to reveal it. No more back to home screen and leave what you are doing to get info you need in full screen app.
feedback welcome. Note - It doesn't work in Honeycomb and ICS tablet version because there is no such need..

These people are becoming my favorite developer. This app is simply great. Works perfect
It's great being able to access my status bar in full screen applications! No issues whatsoever. I haven't even had to open it since I turned it on. This will be on every phone I'll ever own.
Nova launcher. Boat browser on a YouTube page, full screen.
I hate the settings where the notification bar will time out because even the notification PANEL also times out. I hope there is a separate setting to make the panel NOT time out.
Does exactly what it says it does, and it does it really well
Must have app for every smartphone other than Samsung
Make my HTC a perfect One! Thanks
