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 yo. . . READ ON »
