Default PA Immersive Mode + Notifications?

So I'm a recent covert to PA, using immersive mode with PIE and loving it! My only gripe though is without the status bar, there's no quick way to get to any new notifications without swiping down once to show the status bar, and then again to show the notification shade.

On the lock screen i tried using DashClock in expanded mode so i can just click on the notification from there, but i find that annoying because then you have to hold the lock icon to unlock the screen? How do you guys do it?

You swipe up the lock icon to minimize an expanded Widget (You expand it by swiping down).

And that works fine, I guess I was looking for a one touch solution. In reality, pulling down the shade and choosing the notification was two touches, and so is pulling down to expand, and then choosing the notification is two as well, so that's not bad, but still trying to find a solution from the home screen or other apps.

You can use DashClock Widget on the home screen too?

Why don't you just use immersive mode with the status bar visible? Its a setting behind the quick toggle for immersive mode. Set it to Nav Bar only.
