Have you ever wanted to change the status bar on your Android phone or tablet?
Maybe you want you to change the position of the clock and a battery percentage or just get a different look.
Whatever the reason, there is a simple way to customize your status bar, and it does not even require root access. If you ever want you to change the color of status bar, or Re-position certaine element like locks or change the way certain things, like battery network Or Wi-Fi indicator look this is possible!
So let’s get started:first of all, download and install the app: Status, which you can download for free from the Google Play store. Before installing status, you must know that it requires a lot of permission in order to work properly and functions without any errors. For instance it require access to notifications battery and Wi-Fi location service, alarm,etc. All the required permissions are listed on the app description page, in the Google Play store along with that explaination of why these permissions are required.After installing the app and granting it access to all the necessary permissions you will see the customization option.
Before going all into customization ,you have to enable the status bar replacement by standing on the toggle on the top right area of the app.Once enabled you will see this new status bar the app is divided into four separate screens or panels, each one containing various customization options.For instance, the first screen: the setting screens, allows you to customize stuff like colors,transparency,animations,notifications etc. For notifications,you can choose the duration of heads of notifications as well as the way they appear.Swipe left and you get to the second screen, here you can customize all the contents of the status bar like battery, Wi-Fi Network, clock, notifications, bluetooth,GPS,a plan moves etc.
Basically you can customize icons for almost anything that appear on the status bar.For some you get multiple icon styles to choose from,while for some you got to stick to that part one, but even they look good and make the overall attractive. After replacement status bar, next screen lets you decides the behavior of status bar, as well as its color per individual apps. For example ,you can set the status bar to look green and visible for the Google Play store or set it to red or invisible for Youtube. So, that’s status, it’s simple to use and looks and feel somewhat elegant.It may feel a bit odd in the beginning, but you will get used to it eventually.There are some other apps that let you customize the status bar, and I found this one to be the best for non rooted users.
