What is status bar content padding ?
The notch and rounded corner trend has brought this thing in android. On smart phones with notches and rounded corner the icons are moved slightly to the center from both sides of status bar to avoid them from being overlapped by the rounded corners.
This was fine for such devices with notches and corners , but the devices with no rounded corner and notches suffered from the issue of content padding . The padding on both sides of status bar is clearly visible.
This app will let you adjust the padding values (from 0 to 20) , so you can adjust it as you like.
This app might not work on some Stock/Custom Roms (You will not see any difference while moving seekbar) because either they don't have any padding in status bar or they use different kind of method for padding.
