StatusBar+ Reaches Beta

StatusBar+ beta one Screenshot

Happy New Years everyone! Our gift to you comes in the form of an update for StatusBar+, which is now in beta. Among the new features includes automatic full-screen detection (no more choosing which applications to auto-hide in), notification support (when StatusBar+ is enabled in Settings > Accessibility), the ability to remove the ongoing notification, an option for rooted users on Gingerbread – Honeycomb that removes the system status bar completely, and an improved user interface featuring new Zune-style pivots.

Remember that while StatusBar+ is no longer in its alpha stage of development, bugs are still likely present. Being as unique of an application as it is, StatusBar+ may not work perfectly on every device. As always if you run into an issue please send us an email stating your device, firmware, and a description of the problem. Leaving comments in the Android Market will not allow us to address the issue.

That is it for now, so thank you to all of our beta testers for providing valuable feedback, and cheers to a New Year, 2012 here we come!

Seven+ Calculator Now Open Source, Version Gamma Two


The Seven+ Calculator has found its way to version gamma two, mostly just fixing a few small bugs. That, and as part of the Seven+ Project’s open source initiative it is now free and open source! Just like StatusBar+ it is done so under the Apache 2.0 License and is available for download on GitHub. Please get the latest update on the Android Market and do not forget to update your comment/ rating.

StatusBar+ upgraded to Alpha Three

Are you using StatusBar+, or waiting for a good reason to purchase the full version? Well now is the time. It has been upgraded to version Alpha Three and now includes the following features/ fixes:

  • Added the ability to auto-hide the status bar when a given application is opened (experimental).
  • Automatically drops the signal indicator when in a call.
  • Added the ability to disable the swipe to display the system notification panel.
  • Added a battery percent indicator.
  • Plays nice with WidgetLocker and NoLock (experimental).
  • Fixed bug with scrolling in icon list.
  • Fixed bug with hiding time/ signal strength.
  • Fixed Wi-Fi pulsation when searching/ connecting to a network.
  • Removed overscroll glow in all lists (GB+).

Please remember that if you do not see the icons you need only click and they will appear, and if you run into issues (which is very possible), emailing us is preferred to a Market comment if you wish to see the issue resolved. For those using StatusBar+ Lite please consider purchasing the full version if you want the latest features, settings, and bug fixes. Thank you to everyone who has been supporting this application, especially those who have been reporting bugs and waiting patiently for them to be fixed.
