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.

are available, for instance to script some action
* 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.
