    Question Anyway to completely hide the top status bar? (but still pull down for notifications)

    The top status bar is a waste of space to me and quite annoying when I am browsing the web in landscape mode as it takes up precious real estate.

    I would really like to be able to hide the status bar from showing anywhere on the phone (including while I am in apps), yet still be able to swipe down to see notifications if I need to.

    Is there any way I could do this? Perhaps once I'm rooted or a certain rom?

    Thank you for your help.

    Many launchers can do this. I know for sure that Nova Launcher can, and whatever Themer uses also is capable.

    I don't believe this is true.

    My main issue is hiding the top status bar while I'm in applications. Launchers don't do this, they only hide the status bar while you are on the home screens.

    Is there a way I can hide the top status bar while inside applications? (yet still pull swipe down for notifications)

    Sounds like something you would need to root for.
