Yes, I know its a simple app and it could be free, but this is kind of an experiment for me to see if I can make money writing apps. It also will provide the encouragement I need to keep developing it. And yeah, the demo is just to make sure people don't get stuck buying the paid app and have it not work. Its not really intended to be useful.

Great idea. Looking forward to where this might go.
Hey that's a great idea! I'll look into that.

What you could (should) do is this.
Two finger swipe down off of the screen = Hide status bar.
Two finger swipe up onto the screen = Restore status bar.
Does that make sense?
It's a great start!
Actually I was originally going to hook into the volume buttons, and have one hide it and one restore it, but I found that background services don't have access to the volume buttons. Orientation was less ideal, but It was something I could hook into from the background. I'm not sure if background services can see the gestures, but I will look into it! One thing I know I can do is look at the accelerometer instead of the orientation. That way even if you're locked, you can still rotate to show the bar. Of course.. then its sideways, and that's weird. But thanks for the words of encouragement as well!

on adw ex I have swipe down as notifications. with this thing enabled. I swipe down and my notifications dont pop up
really wished that I could swipe down for my notifications with the bar off
O well, guess its good for specific apps although I would really like to see it as a more accessible thing like wizzbar
Ooh, yeah the app kills the process that contains the notifications, so that is one area where it won't work. Also, I said this above but I'm not sure if I can see gestures from a background process. But I will look into it for sure! That would definitely be better.
I also realized that if I implement the suggestion above about selecting which apps to disable my app on, I could have it also disabled on the home screen. That would be nice.
