Immersive Full-Screen Mode

Immersive Full-Screen Mode


Enter the all new KitKat Immersive Mode. Get full screen on any application.

IMPORTANT: because of an Android limitation, the keyboard will not work while in immersive mode.

This tool can enter and leave the new Immersive Mode so that you can take advantage of every pixel on your screen. This will thus hide the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen.

Features:
* Enter and leave immersive mode from settings
* Enter and leave immersive mode from the notification area
* Multiple options on how and when a notification should be displayed
* Choose to also hide the status bar on top
* Can automatically enter immersive mode on selected applications
* Has a blacklist for applications that you rather never have in immersive mode
* Contains a widget to toggle the state
* Has Tasker/Locale support
* Does not require root! So no root is needed, no extra configuration is needed, works out of the box!
* Public intents
- be.ppareit.immersivemode.ACTION_ENTER_IMMERSIVEMODE
- be.ppareit.immersivemode.ACTION_LEAVE_IMMERSIVEMODE
- be.ppareit.immersivemode.ACTION_TOGGLE_IMMERSIVEMODE
are available, for instance to script some action

Known issues:
* Keyboard only works in certain cases. It might be needed to exit immersive mode for certain applications to use the keyboard. This is a security feature of android.
* Some applications can't handle switching to immersive mode. Those applications don't follow the normal design guidelines of android. Mostly games have this problem.
* On the cyanogenmod ROM, the home button will not work

Pretty much perfect At first I wasn't too fond of this app. I found it annoying to have to either go into the app or go to the notification shade to toggle it on/off. But then I found the auto enter list in the settings where you can choose from a list of your apps and make them go full screen upon startup. There's also an option to stop apps that normally go into immersion mode from doing so. Overall a great app and worth every cent.

Great for games. I was always annoyed by the soft keys while playing games, this allows you to utilize the entire screen. That alone is work the $ .

Still very buggy I would love an immersive mode option like in nvidia shield tablet, it works great in every single app

WARNING: Waste of money on M8, no dev support Works fine for some apps, other apps completely crash. I'd rate this higher if it let me multitask on my M8, I paid for this and shouldn't be experiencing such issues. This still doesn't do it for me, there should be a toggle to just make it go away from OS and fool the apps that crash into changing the usable space, I guess that requires root for now, hopefully that isn't the case in a future Android update, they need to let us take advantage of the 5 inch screen even if it has keyboard issues.
