Thanks, very useful. ??
What exactly does "hide logos" do?
And there's a bug, the buttom bar reappears after having used the search bar even although it's disabled in Maps tweak.

Seems kind of finicky. I'm on the lastest stable gmaps and it seemed to change something but the settings didn't "stick".

Edit: Seems like the setting to move the categories closer to top work, but the hide explore/bottom bar works when you open it explore window then slide it down. Then it'll all be hidden.

When I close and reopen the app the bottom bar reappears.

Hide logos :) Like "Google" logo at the bottom-left corner + some invisible logo that can be shown during usage
Reappearing is not a bug cause all the tweaks working once during startup. The idea is to hide unused bottom slider at the launch time but allow you to use search and show results as usual.

Seems kind of finicky
I've changed the slider state detection, so update and try new version. I use the last G-maps version too.

Oh, I see. I didn't even realize the logo up until now. But since you have made me aware of it, it would drive me crazy. So seems like I'm totally dependent on this module now. :D
Though, version 1.1 automatically opens the Explore Nearby menu after pressing the back button in the search menu. Is it supposed to be that way? I'd personally prefer not having to press the back button an other time to get back to the map.

No :) Google Maps is responsible for this.

Bottom slider is the base layout for search results, so it opens every time when you search smth. Thus I think it's not good idea to totally remove the slider. I'm not sure if it's safe or useful

But in version 1.0 it was different. I actually just switched back to 1.0 for that reason. :eek:

I'm a bit confused. The sole difference is in the calculation of slider state, nothing else. I'll test this

UPD: "Hide bottom bar also" is checked? please white step-by-step what to do to reproduce this

"Hide Explore Nearby bottom slider", "Hide bottom bar also", "Cathegories top list:" "Hide" and "Hide logos" are all checked.
1. Start Gmaps
2. tap on search bar --> keyboard and search menu with recent search results open
3. press back button --> keyboard closes
4. press back button again
a) --> (1.0) shows map and bottom bar
b) --> (1.1) shows "Explore --city-name--" full screen

Hello :) First, thank you for the nice module :) Second: I've notice that when I enable "Hide Explore Nearby" and I open Google Maps in split screen mode, Explore Nearby panel fills the whole Maps half-screen. Is it a bug? Thank you in advance.

Hello! Unfortunately I don't have Note or any other phone with large screen, so I can not test this issue at the moment. Please make screenshots for me (GM, switch off and on the module), maybe I can understand what's the problem

Sure, I should have done that at first ;) Screenshots attached, one with the Hide Explore Nearby turned off, second with turned on. I want to notice that without split screen mode the module works 100% properly. Thanks for help!
