Well I tried it out, I couldn't seem to get it to do what I wanted, because even though the nav bar was transparent, the screen seemed to be still scaled for the nav bar. The only way I can get the screen to scale to take the space of the nav bar is expanded desktop mode and use the pie controls, which I don't really like. It just seems like there would be a way. I don't really need a black background to my nav bar, I know where the buttons are in my head, just the outline of the buttons would be enough for me. If I was able to see what was underneath the buttons that would make my screen seem bigger and better for reading and browsing and such.
