This is a great app. I have a new tablet with no root method available (yet), and this enables me, on a per app basis, to hide the navigation bar. This results in significant more screen space in the games and apps that I enjoy. For web browsing alone, this app is worth every penny. Make sure that if you find an app that wont launch, simply configure the app to show the soft keys when you are using it. They will hide when you close it.
Good and bad I really like the concept of this app and have used the free version off and on. While the keyboard issue is definitely an issue, it's something I can work with. What I wanted was the per-app setting. I purchased the pro version just for this. However, when I launch the relevant app, the soft keys are not hidden and I am redirected to the GMD Immersive app rather than the app I want to use. I've requested a refund and will reconsider the app if this bug is resolved. Running Lollipop 5.1.
Aleksandar It was working very well on my HTC One M8 while I was running KitKat 4.4.4. So good that I went for a Pro version. SInce last night when I moved to Lollipop 5.0.1 it doesn't work even close as it was before. The settings per application are not working and some applications that application was capable to force to immersive mode now doesn't work (it removes the bars but empty black bars stays instead). Since it was really good please, please, please fix it so it can work on Lollipop as on KitKat. Thanks in advance,
The best implementation of forced immersive mode without root The workaround for the system keyboard limitation (not the developer's fault) is to simply swipe from either the top (the notification bar), or from the bottom (the navigation bar). The only downside of this app is the in-app purchase option, which didn't work for me initially. Also, it strangely doesn't show itself in recent apps.
Generally works well I purchased the PRO version via an in app purchase so that I could use immersive mode on a per app basis. I was a little wary of doing it but it has worked out well. I mainly wanted it for using chrome on a nexus 7 in landscape mode. It works perfectly and I now use it for a few other apps too. Some apps don't work as well but I suspect that the apps in question are not redrawing themselves properly when the navigation and status bars disappear. Anyway I'm very pleased with this app.
Lollipop 5.0.2 kills this (NOT! Revised) I wrote: Upgraded to Lollipop 5.0.2 today on my Nexus 7, and this app that I truly loved for my uses is no longer working at all, in any way. Sad here. Today I uninstalled and re-installed this app to find it working fine again, now on Lollipop (Android 5.0.2). So I am happy here again.
