  1. Add shadows at the status bar at the homescreen

    It is impossible to read the status bar if a white wallpaper is used. Please add shadow or anything that make it possible to see the status bar.

  2. Fade

    When long pressing an app icon, quick actions pop up and the background becomes darker but not the status bar and navigation bar. They should become darker too.

  5. Change the colour of the status bar

    Allow users to choose the style of the status bar at the top of the screen. A dark, light and transparent option would work well in relation to the theme being used on Launcher.

    A non transparent status bar would be ideal for situations where the contrast of the home screen wallpaper makes the status bar difficult to see.

  6. Allow customizing or automatically customize the status bar text & background colours based on wallpaper for the home screen.

    Change the colour of the text, icons & background of the status bar so they are visible clearly even when using a light colored wallpaper. The colour can be chosen automatically or give the user to choose colour.

  11. ocultar automáticamente la barra de estado si no hay ninguna notificación.

    La barra de estado quedaría oculta todo el tiempo, y solo aparecería si llega alguna notificación como WhatsApp o facebook o cualquier otra, y una vez leída dicha notificación se ocultaria nuevamente.

  14. Status bar

    Change the bar from just black to also maybe transparent and white at least.

    Would be cool to change the font colors also.

  20. allow users to change notification / status bar to stock android look and feel

    Stock android style notification bar and enabling it should not require any permissions.
