"Finally, your status bar always accessible"

Reviewed by / Mar 30, 2012

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.

    This is one of those apps I always install on a new phone or new ROM. Never had any problems with it.

    This app does just what it advertises! The only thing I would recommend is having it use less CPU to consume less battery life Thanks dev!
