Hey, I've noticed that since I updated to NE6, the status bar on many apps is transparent, or blends with the top of the app, For example:






My question is this:

Why do some apps have the transparent status bar, such as Titanium Backup, Drives, Messaging, and others, but other apps do not?

Also, is there a way to make other apps conform to the transparent status bar?

I think that the NE6 transparency as depicted in your post looks a lot better than
if it was 100% fully transparent. It looks kinda "3D'ish" if you know what I mean.

The reason some of the apps don't/can't use the transparency effect or don't use it properly
is due to the fact that some apps (mostly from the playstore) are not designed to be modified
by other 3rd party apps like the app you use to create your transparent status bar.

The better built/designed 3rd apps can and do transparency very well though.

Good luck!

I think you misunderstand me. I did not modify anything. This is basically stock NE6. (Effortless ROM) He listed no such mods.
