Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Get Rid of Notifications With Style on Your EVO 3D With “Slide To Clear”
For many of us, having notifications on the top bar is an ultimate necessity for today’s Android. You can learn about things that go on in the background that may be automated such as Market updates to some apps, and other useful things such as getting notifications about e-mails, text, messages, missed calls, etc. However, there comes a point during your day where having 10 small icons on your top bar can become a bit of an eyesore. Among these notifications, you may have a few that you may want to keep handy as you intend attending to them at a later time but don’t want to go through each and every app to get rid of these notifications.
If this sounds like your case, then you will be happy to see what XDA member gruesomewolf has in stock for you. Slide to Clear will allow you to get rid of individual notifications in a flash by simply holding them and sliding them to the side of your screen. Something worth noting is that the mod itself is not compatible or included with other Tweak sets such as Leedroid (a compatible version can be found in the second post).
Installation is simple, just flash the provided zip through Recovery. However, if you have doubts or feedback, please let the dev know.
This mod will add Slide to Clear Notifications to your status bar. Anyone who has ran CM knows what Im talking about, for those that dont I have a little video.

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
