Please note: This app requires a navigation bar which is only present on certain devices, e.g., Nexus 7. The navigation bar shows the back, home and recents buttons on the screen ("software" buttons). Many devices use hardware buttons instead and thus are not supported! If you aren't sure if your device is compatible please contact me via email ( apps@cygery.com ) and include your device model and Android version.

Notes:

• To use the navigation control buttons (home, menu and recents) please activate the app's accessibility service when prompted to do so.
• Simply rotate your device to add items for the other orientation.
• Not all widgets are designed for smaller dimensions and thus might not be usable.
• Use the widget scaling option for fine tuning.
• This app does not affect the system's navigation bar. Especially, it cannot modify it in any way, e.g., changing its icons is not possible.
• Tested on Android 4.1 - 4.3. Android 4.4 is not supported.

Permissions:

Draw over other apps: To display the panel items etc.
Run at startup: To automatically launch when the device is started.
Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage: Needed on some devices to store an application report which can be sent to the developer.

    ,but needs root or may be custom rom too, using omni rom(for those who do not have custom rom like mine but has root then use xposed module instead), navigation bar dpi set to 0 and voila it's done, finally great to have it back on kitkat Galaxy note 10.1

    This program is good, just what I was looking for. But for some reason it won't let me buy the full app, only the trial version.
