DescriptionStatusBar+ is the FIRST custom status/ notification bar for Android, no root or custom ROM required!
It works in any orientation and appears consistently for ANY and ALL applications. In full screen applications it automatically hides and in some applications like ZPlayer it becomes transparent for seamless integration.
In order for StatusBar+ to handle third-party notifications it MUST be enabled in System Settings > Accessibility and NOT in the app itself1
StatusBar+ is more than just a custom status bar. It comes bundled with its own MIUI-style battery bar, the ability to change any and all indicators to any color your heart desires, features for users with AMOLED screens to avoid pixel burn-in, popup notifications, and much more.
What are people saying?
"Best app for Froyo!! Works perfect on moto defy am so so so happy I no longer have grey bar. And all notifications still Work. Wifi and signal icons are active. Very stable. Unlike super status bar. Worth every cent." - NiC
"Beautiful! Felt I had to update my review to reflect the fact that I have experienced none of the instability... Rock solid." - Skinny
"Good stuff Nice app, nice dev." - Zik
Currently supported system indicators include Signal strength (GSM, EVDO, and CDMA. 4G HSPA+, WiMax, and LTE experimental), Data network type (ie. EDGE, 3G, 4G, etc.), WiFi signal strength & WiFi Access Point, Bluetooth, Language, GPS, Battery percentage & icon, Time (automatic 24-hour detection based on the system preference), and more coming soon.

StatusBar+ CANNOT support "Tap to drop," on your ROM, so please disable it. There is nothing that can be done about this, sorry.
StatusBar+ is not your "normal" application, and in an attempt to support over 1,300 devices you may find bugs! While this application has been tested rather extensively on a number of devices (rooted and not), there is no guarantee that it will work perfectly on your device. If you run into any issues please send send us an email (email@example.com) stating your device's make/ model, firmware, ROM (if applicable), and a description of the issue. We CANNOT respond to comments on Google Play.
Custom lock screens:
WidgetLocker, WP7Lock, MagicLocker, and Ripple Lock are among the many supported custom lock screens. If you wish to have another lock screen added please let us know and we will get in touch with the developers, but we make no guarantee.
StatusBar+ is the best custom status bar, battery bar, and popup notification app because by combing all of these features into one app battery drain along with CPU & memory usage is reduced.
Signal strength calculation may not work properly on your device. The Samsung Galaxy S II line and Sony Ericsson Arc running Gingerbread 2.3.X, for example, have a documented issue (see http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=16862). If you run into problems with signal strength please try our other application, Signal Strength Detector (see http://market.android.com/details?id=com.tombarrasso.android.signaldetector), available for free on the Android Market and submit your results. This will help us further improve calculation.
WiFi, Phone state, Bluetooth, etc. are for the status bar indicators. INTERNET is to "Anonymous reporting" and can be disabled. Keyguard, persistent window, etc. are for hiding lockscreen, displaying above all apps, etc. SMS & contacts is for SMS popups and converting phone numbers to names :-) Any questions about permissions ask on Twitter, @SevenPluAndroid
