Omega Status Bar for Greater Features and Customization

It’s not a crazy thought to think that most of us spend a fair amount of time looking at either the status bar or notification drawer. It goes without saying then that you probably want to tweak these areas to suit the way you use your device. While some custom ROMs contain features to do this, you may not wish to run a different ROM for a simple tweak or that tweak simply may not be available. This app might just be what you’ve been looking for.

Omega Status Bar by XDA Forum Member A Dev@Calstro is a complete alternative to the stock status bar boasting a wide array of features from simply tweaking the clock to blacklisting specific notifications. It also supports custom themes from a third party or even your own.  Some of the apps main features include;

  • Auto detection for hidden status bar & screen orientation
  • High temp & battery sensors
  • Exclusion list for unwanted notifications
  • Notification count for multiple notifications
  • Built in theme manager
  • Many more

The app should work on Android 2.1 through 4.1, so if you are looking for a replacement status bar, this is definitely something worth looking into. Head on over to the original forum thread for a full run down of the features and download links.

Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
