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

Perfect for my Nexus 6! If reaching the notification bar is a pain in the butt for you in Lollipop then this is the app to get. One press and the "mini" status bar comes down, but with a downward swipe you get the full status bar. Thank you for not requiring any special permissions!
