I'm developing an app and to make it look better I would like to use transparent system bars on kitkat devices but when I set it up it forces me to move the minimum api level to kitkat (19) but that means my app is only gonna show up on kitkat devices, right? So I was searching around the web to see if it's possible to use it on kitkat while keeping the compatibility for ics or jb. I couldn't find anything so I'm posting here.

it is possible, pushbullet features that functionality while compatible with ics
