Full Screen Your Apps on KitKat with Immerse Me

Expanded Desktop, also known as Immersive Mode, is one of the coolest features available in CyanogenMod and other custom ROMs. For those unfamiliar, it is essentially full-screen mode, where the menu and status bar are hidden and appear when you pull your finger from top of the screen vertically.

Many of you can’t have (blame manufacturers or carriers for locking your bootloaders) or don’t want to use custom ROMs. But now, it’s possible to use the Immersive Mode without changing your ROM. All you need to do is to use the Xposed Framework module created by well known XDA Senior Member MohammadAG. This module defaults to set Immersive Mode on all applications, but it will be possible to do this on a per-application basis in the future.

Please note that this module will work only on rooted phones running both Android 4.4 KitKat and Xposed Framework. If you’re a fan of immersive mode, you should make your way over to the module thread to learn more.
