About this app

A message from the idiot that wrote this program:
Status has not been abandoned, but is now incompatible with a growing range of devices due to a variety of problems. Unfortunately, there is nothing that I or any other developer can do to prevent this. If the Play Store says that your device is incompatible, then there is nothing that I can do to help you other than point you to one of the links below about why it will not function.


Status will continue to receive support for devices below Android Oreo for as long as it remains in the interest of the community.


Status is a status bar replacement that draws an overlay on top of the system-generated status bar. This means that the actual status bar is only hidden under the replacement; touch gestures are not overridden, and the standard notification panel is still shown. It needs a lot of permissions in order to obtain the information needed to display in the status bar. These are listed below.

- Accessibility Service: used to attempt to get the status bar color of the current app if the 'status bar coloring' preference is enabled.
- Notification Access: used to get the icons of the current notifications.
- System Alert Window, System Overlay Window: used to draw the status bar above all other apps.
- Battery Stats: used to find if the battery is charging and what percent it is at.
- Network State, Phone State: gets the type and connection of the phone network, and if airplane mode is enabled.
- Wifi State: finds if wifi is enabled and how good the connection is.
- Bluetooth: find if bluetooth is enabled & connected or not.
- Location Services: finds if GPS is enabled.
- Alarm: find if an alarm is set.
- External Storage: backup/restore all settings from a file.

Special thanks to the contributors that have helped to design the app, fix issues, and translate it to different languages:
- Anas Khan: designed the app icon & helped with UI
- Vukašin Anđelković: made a couple status bar icons
- Ghost Ninja: also made some status bar icons
- Eugenio Martinez Seguin: Spanish translations
- Kim Inseop: Korean translations
- Majida Whale: Chinese translations
- Marwan ALsidi: Arabic translations

Great app. Been using for over a year now. But the network icon still remains even when airplane mode is on and the network bar isn't always correct. Also, can't u make the status bar more material, you know some apps don't really retain a particular color.. the status bar is supposed to change like the normal system status bar.

App seems to work good but I wish there was a way to resize and move all the icons in groups (for like the wifi, 4g, battery, etc.). Also I really just want to use this to keep android from changing the color of the bar. Would be nice if I could just make this app invisible so I can see my stock bar, but this apps status bar would keep apps from going full screen and changing the color (like when Gmail makes the status bar white and I can't see the icons).

Status bar looks great! Plenty of options for customisation, however, I uninstalled the app due to power consumption. If your phone has a weak battery, this may not be for you. If you keep a power bank with you, I'd recommend trying this app. My phone battery usually lasts the day, but this app drains power in only 4 hours down from 12. Overall, easy to use, looks great and customisable. Only real downside to this; power consumption.
