Status Bar Expander

Status Bar Expander


Status Bar Expander expands/opens the notification bar. It is accessible from anywhere via long press at the search button.

You can also use it as a widget-like shortcut on your home screen.

- Long pressing the search button may not work on some devices, e.g. Defy and Droid X, and of course not on devices without a search button.
- On stock Jelly Bean (Android 4.1 and up), long pressing the search button is overridden by Google Search.
- Unfortunately it is not possible to display the status bar if it is hidden by your launcher. Only the notification drawer will be expanded.

User reviews of Status Bar Expander
Hello Friedflow, I wonder if there is a way to make it work from the menu button hold or back button hold ? because the search button hold is already used by some apps as a shortcut to quick Message ... Thanks

The definition of a perfect app I don't know how this app does what it does, but it apparently reads my mind to know what app I want to open a particular file with. It works great, and is right every time! No annoying ads and it's free. What more can anyone ask for? (Plus no hidden permissions; thank you author!)

LCD / Digitizer going bad If your status bar will no longer pull down from the top of your screen, it's probably a bad digitizer. There isn't really any fix for the hardware, but this app is really all you need. Put it into your home bar and you can use your status bar from the lock screen again.
