    Default App to pull down the notification bar?

    I have the Note 2 and when Iam using it with one hand with my pinky finger not under the phone. It is hard to reach all the Way up to pull down the notification bar.

    Is there a app/icon to press to pull down the notificationbar?

    If you use a different launcher, such as Nova Launcher, you can set up gestures like swiping down for notifications. I have my GS3 set up like this. I swipe down for notifications, I swipe up for the app drawer. I do not know of a way to do that using the stock TouchWiz launcher though. Hope this helps.

    thanks for the info. I thought About that Also but I like original stock ICS launcher for now.
    On MY old phone with GB, you would press the settings button and there you would have a button that says "Show notification".
    ThatS what I wish ICS would have.
    And hope I find a app/ icon before I drop my phone trying to reach the notification bar

    This is exactly how I have Nova set up on my S3. You can swipe on any location on your home screen to invoke these special actions.

    I have heavily customized my Nova settings, but I believe you can set it up to look close to stock TouchWiz. Even with the custom launcher, you still keep all the functionality of TW.

    Think I found one. Search for "Status Bar Expander" in the Play Store. Then just add a shortcut to your homescreen.

    The free version of Nova launcher has a built in icon that will do this. (For gestures, you need the paid version.)
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
