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.

Great app with minor Android 5.x compatibility issues This app works fine on a Nexus 5 running Android 5.1.1 but not on any Samsung Android 5.x devices. Otherwise it would merit 5 stars.
