Utility for fast access to notification or quick settings panel using swipe gestures from fullscreen applications.

Key Features

  • show notifications from fullscreen applications
  • show quick settings panel (Android 4.2+)
  • one finger and two finger gesture
  • vibration feedback
  • option to change touch area position and width

This is not official feature of Android SDK, so there are some limitations (little delay at first start) and it may not work at all devices (and ROMs) correctly. If you have any problem, please send me email, I will try to fix the problem as soon as possible.

Cool app! But it's not working properly for me. I'm running sense 5 and when I start the service on full screen apps the status bar stays down instead of hiding

I fixed this issue, please download new version ;)

Thanks! One more suggestion, maybe instead of it pulling down the notifications all the way it pulls down the status bar first then we could be able to pull down the notifications

Some people might not want this suggestion implemented so I suggest you have 2 options, one for how it currently is implemented, and another one for pulling down the status bar first.

Of course, I've already done, there is check box for this feature. I'm just waiting for translations and after that, I upload it on Play Store.

Great, I'll test it!!

The statusbar is not working with AOSPAL Rom in fullscreen with the pie enabled. I got the vibrating feedback but the bar is not showing :(

I have P.A.C True All in 1 ROM on my SGS3. If I set trigger area of pie to normal and pie gravity to top SwipeStatusBar does not work (that is understandable), in other cases it works. Please, could you check your settings? If the problem persists with different settings, I will try to fix the problem on AOSPAL ROM.

Great apple! I can help you with Polish translation.

Excellent, I have sent you PM

Same problem for me. I'm on AOSPA (Mako) and in extended desktop mode, the statusbar wont show up! (tried with all possible settings)
It only works with full-screen/Pie disabled. :(

    Hello @Thomas.
    Any possibility to share how the "alternative mode" pulls down the status bar?

    No problem. Here you are source codes. Please do not upload my project on Google Play with some other name ;)

    With the source code of CyanogenMod I solved this issue. New version will be online in few hours, please try it and let me know if that helped on your device ;)
