    Sometimes if i am in an app or game, i can accidentally pull the notification bar down, especially if i have to tap that area of the screen, i was wondering if there is a way so when i am in an app, i can set it to lock and not automatically pull down?

    There has also been times when i have been in a phone call and my ear has actually made the bar activate and drag down.

    Thanks

    James

    You might try a custom launcher. NOVA is a good one to check out. Many of them have options to hide the status bar.

    If Nova doesn't float your boat there are many to choose from on the play store HERE.

    Just installed it and looked.

    Apex settings>home screen settings>hide notification bar

    It's the 3rd one from the bottom.
