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

Doesn't work on Nexus 6 Should make it listen for long click on home button or make it configurable...

Unable to use it with Lollipop. I had this app installed in mostly all my other phones; S3, S4, Note 2....now I have Note 3. Great app if you don't have 5.0.
