I keep getting this notification when I have various apps open. It doesn't happen with the offending apps on every occasion but I sure as heck would like to disable this obnoxious message permanently of possible. Currently unrooted running stock 4.4.2.

Attached screenshot is the Dynamic Notifications app, not the stock active display.

Looks like you're using Gravity Box, with "expanded desktop" enabled? If so that's probably the issue. Try turning off expanded desktop and let us know if that helps...

Ah...

Ok, here is your answer:

Open Dynamic Notification, click advanced options. Now click advanced options in the drop down menu.

UNCHECK "Use Immersive mode"

The status bar will probably show, but problem solved. Its immersive mode that causes the message to appear.

Any app that uses immersive mode will trigger the pop-up.

Alright thanks. I did try that and it does remove the message, I was just hoping I could get the full screen experience out of it. I'm guessing this is the app's issue? Wish I could just disable hints completely. Don't need em. Thanks man

I don't think its the apps issue...more like a 'bug' in android. Not sure if I would even call it a bug...there just isn't any option anywhere to turn off the immersive mode "swipe down" messages. I imagine it was intentional....cause you just know that 10,000 people would call in to tech support saying they're stuck in full screen and can't get out.

I guess this is one advantage active display has over dynamic notification....that and power saving. AD doesn't actually wake your phone...one of the co-processors in the "X8" system is able to provide the notifications while sipping battery power.

I didn't know that about Active Display in respect to saving battery. Very cool! Might switch back. I was just used to Dynamic Notifications on my old phone.

UPDATE: Per your round-about recommendation I'm now using Active Display. Really like it! Guess I was quick on the trigger with disabling it and installing Dynamic Notifications when I first got the phone. I appreciate it.
