    Used this for over a year, pretty good. Decided to upgrade to the pro version so we could change the wallpaper and now it doesn't work. Installed twice, cleared data etc. Either crashes, freezes or you cant see any icons.

    It's a nice idea, but the status bar shouldn't be accessible at the top.
