Default Hide status bar

If u guys want a full screen effect that way the status bar if gone simple do this:

- First if u haven't already, download launcher pro
- Next go to any of your dock icons and long press it
- When it asks, click on the swipe gesture action
- Go ahead and choose hide status bar

Thats it. Gives u your full 4 inch display. Enjoy!!!!

I think this only blocks it momentarily until you start something that brings the notifications bar up, then it comes back. A more permanent way using LauncherPro is to to check the box in the Appearance settings to hide the notification bar.

yes. the first way (swipe) is broken and the second way hides it forever. i really wish it had an auto-hide like you can with your Windows taskbar.
