    Is it possible to have the Nav bar at the bottom hide? (The back, home page bar). It disappears when watching a video etc. So why can't there be a way to make it hide and get some more screen space back. It looks like another row of icons would fit there. Right now if you swipe up that dumb Google search thing comes up. Seems like it could be set to auto hide and then swipe up to make it pop out again.

    Unfortunately there isn't. Those are the main navigation "buttons" for the device.

    Boooo Hisssss....


    Really, I don't see why - its clearly software based, so I'm confused as to why there isn't a way to do it.

    Its because there are no actual capacitive or hard keys on the device itself. For example the device I use (HTC One S) has capacitive keys on the device itself so I have the option of disabling the nav bar in any rom I install.
