It doesn't seem to work on API 27 devices. On my Pixel 2 XL it correctly draws the status bar background and fake icons, but doesn't cover over the system icons, so all icons (Android and from this app) are visible, making the status bar look even worse.
The best I love this app very much. It eliminates the annoying icons on status bar. Only problem, for 4 stars, is the awful clock that doesn't work. Its unnecessary but no way to disable. I tried other apps, but returned to this one.
All the negative reviews, sigh! This is for developers and works amazing for app screenshots. No more Photoshop work :D More options would be nice. Need to have icon sets for different brands of phones.
Saves lots of time! I used to have to change the time back every minute and swipe away the "screenshot taken" notification after every screenshot! This makes things much easier. No ads or iaps just makes it even sweeter.
Awful One suggestion... Maybe make the clock run? And when I pull down the bar, it shows an ugly mixture of the stock status bar and your "neat" status bar. Uninstalled. You made a nice joke, congrats!! 😂😂😂
Alternative over stock Can't speak for Marshmallow, but in Nougat devs have this option stock. Just unlock developer tools, then go to Demo Mode, then Enable Demo and Show Demo. It will change colors and allow you to pull down the tray without interfering. But I commend this developer for thinking about this long ago!
- You can now use the ToggleReceiver to enable/disable Clean Status Bar programmatically, e.g. to automate taking screenshots. See the readme on GitHub for more information
