You're welcome! Hope it serves you well. I know it's not perfect, but without root/Xposed we are verrrryyy limited in what we can do!

First off great app, been wanting this feature for so long just for getting at the notification bar.

Is there any way to assign this to a command to be used with a button in the Navigation bar?

Could you add a "toggle" option as an activity for use as a shortcut with Nova Launcher etc. Attached a screenshot for detail.

Is it possible to launch to toggle the one handed mode using an intent? I'd like to toggle it using a button on my navbar

Yes, we can add that to the planned feature list.

Thank you guys! Cannot test it as I don't have a PC at my hand ATM. May I help by translating the app to German? It's more a guessing thing right now, trying to find out what the welcome pages are trying to tell you

Strange, German should be translated. Is it a bad translation?

Xperia Z5 Premium, bone stock 7.1.1. I paid for more features the moment I activated it.

This is honestly amazing. Great for one handed, although...

Attch 1: Sorta works on Twitter. Only half of the reduced screen size is used in the main screen. When you view a profile, the "dead space" is filled by the colour of the header photo.

Attch 2: Nova Launcher, Tumblr, and iYTBP work excellently on the reduced screen mode.

I hope there's an easier way to launch it. A Quick Tile or make it play nice with Custom Navigation Bar.

More power to the developers!

Make it clear please, that the app won't function at all without paying for it!
