Yes - there is a setting you need to change. The Notification bar's actions are based on what you have GMail set up to do when swiping away an email within the app. To change it from Archive: Open Gmail and go to Settings there change the Swiping conversation list from Archive/unlabel/delete to Always delete This changed my Notification bar action from ...

Get this Air Push Detector app to find out what is creating those notifications. Then uninstall the app(s) that are creating them.

They are referring to the mobile data connection: G: GPRS (slowest) E: Edge (enhanced GSM) 3G: UMTS H: HSPA (enhanced 3G) H+: HSPA+ (even more enhanced/faster HSPA) 4G: LTE (thanks to eldarerathis for confirmation) The bars obviously show signal quality, and the arrows show whether data transfer is in progress. As for the colors (your pictures show blue ...

Airpush! A bloody nuisance they are. Need to figure out which app did you install recently, that is the culprit. Uninstall it, let the developer know that airpush is disastrous and let them see their downloads drop! If your handset is rooted, you might try Ad-Away to block those pesky adverts. And its open-source and available on Google Play.

Disabling a notification for particular app wont' save battery. Yes it would a little by not ringing and vibrating and also by not making you look at the phone. Actually notification is handled by OS itself. An app just says that I want this notification to be displayed and OS handles it. In your case those apps are running in background using service and ...

If you have a launcher like LauncherPro or ADW Launcher, you can just hit the menu button in any homescreen and click NOTIFICATIONS. That however doesn't help if you're in another app and want to bring down the Notification area, unfortunately. In LP, you can also configure a swipe action to pull down the Notification area. There's also HelloStatusBar ...

If you're thinking about installing it, I'd recommend you to use Widgetsoid. It can sit on homescreen and as notification (like in image). And, it provides a lot of toggles which -- I bet -- no other app provides.


4

These toggles aren't part of Android. Third party ROMs like CyanogenMod and MIUI, and certain skins that Hardware manufacturers put on Android include that. If you want to have this functionality on a Nexus running stock Android you might want to try these two applications, I have used them both, and they are quite stable and useful. Power Toggles : ...

There are a lot of toggle switches available. Some even come pre-installed -- just check it out: go to your homescreen long-press on an empty space select to add a widget scroll through the list of available widgets select the one you want to use Usually, there are a lot of separate widgets to toggle either Wifi, GPS, ... -- but also a "power-widget" (or ...

Swiping down on the left side of the screen should bring down the notification window shade and swiping down on the right side of the screen should bring down the new "quick settings" window shade which has the settings icon and some other handy settings easily available. As far as the screen adjusting, this is known as auto-rotate and can be changed in the ...

The implementation of what you are asking is too application-specific to work well for most computer applications, thus the usual (and possibly only) solution you will find is use some screensharing app. All applications handle such notifications differently, so it would be too hard to make it work for all applications correctly.

I believe you are talking about the notification drawer, and the top row of icons that toggle functionality like wifi, GPS etc. There appears to be no way to customize what appears in the top row when you are on Samsung's stock software/ROM. You'll have to switch to a ROM like CM9 for that.


3

From what I've seen this is not generally very easy to do. I know that replacing the icons and such requires modifying the underlying framework-res.apk file, and I've never really seen anything that modifies the functionality of the bar itself (aside from custom ROMs with custom frameworks and the like). I'm not completely positive on this, however. If you ...


3

you would need a custom ROM to change the battery in the notification bar. That information, IIRC, is in android.jar and the images are in framework-res.apk. CyanogenMod, for example, lets you remove the battery image for just the % of the battery remaining. The "other methods" are just "hacks" that change the image at every percentage level, and there has ...

This XDA forums thread sounds like what you are looking for. Note that the apk has only been tested on Froyo by the author. Personally i use Battery Indicator Pro, it can also tell you how much time is left on the battery for various usage scenarios.

To answer your questions, yes - there is an app that will allow you to invoke the notification panel: exsbar allows you to assign the long-press search button or long-press camera button to this function. Whether or not this is "an easier way" depends on you, the end-user. :-)


3

You can also press the Menu button and then "Notifications" to pull down the notification screen. It will not be shorter but you will not risk pressing the shortcuts on the top of the screen. And on some phone when holding it with one hand it is easier to use the Menu button than to reach the top of the screen.

I cannot check you image (corporate proxy forbids), but I take it you mean those "toggle buttons" to switch on/off things like Wifi, Bluetooth, etc. In this case, you can do so e.g. with Elixier (first picture1) or Notification Toggle (second picture2) Some Custom ROMs also come with something similar pre-installed, as e.g. CyanogenMod does.

Uhhh...I get Google+ Notifications all of the time. Check: Settings | Apps | Google+ | Show Notifications is checked In the Google+ app, Overflow menu (three vertical dots) | Settings | Notifications is ON. Tap that entry and choose which types of notifications to get. I see POSTS AND MENTIONS Mentions Shares Comments Comments on a post after I ...

Phono is able to replace the carrier's name with a logo: Phono (source: Google Play; click image to enlarge) Take a look at above screenshot. See the T logo in the upper left, on the notification bar? That's placed by Phono. It additionally offers a bunch of widgets to show you network strength and other things, plus some shortcuts (as shown in the ...

I don't know if this is your problem or not, but I occasionally get this on my Droid X. For me, it seems that it's stuck if I try to slide down from the notification bar and nothing happens. However, if I start sliding down from the "pull-down bar", then it will move with my finger (i.e. starting on top of the "pull-down bar" rather than on the notification ...

If you are rooted, install ROM Toolbox Pro. Go to its Interface section where you can find Icon Changer. Its what you are looking for. Using it, you can change Notification bar color as well as icons appear on it. While the app makes backup of relevant system files before change, you should always be prepared for disaster with Nandroid Backup.

I was under the impression (before stumbling upon this solution) that the notification system was a part of the secured Android system, and would only be available for modification while rooted or modded. This little application, Notification Toggle, gives you the power of notification power widgets without root privileges! As far as graphical and design ...

You can hide the top bar if you use a different launcher like @CustomiZer stated, but it will Only hide it when you are on the home screen. When you open apps, if they are not Full Screen apps, the top bar will still be present. This is part of "core" android, and it is not something that can be changed, currently, via a setting or 3rd party application.

If you are just looking for toggle buttons in the notification bar I would check out Widgetsoid, it's a very full-featured app that will let you create widgets or notification toggles of whatever you want. If you are looking to change the way the notification bar looks, you will need to have root access and install a theme, which would void your warranty ...

I had the same question, and found this app: Battery Changer. A couple of problems (that I can overlook) are: It doesn't show while the phone is locked It doesn't hide when another app is in full-screen mode

You can try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.seifsoft.togglepanel It's pretty and quite customizable. You can always flash another ROM, but TogglePanel is a viable (in my opinion) alternative.

Stock ROMs for some handsets from some manufacturers actually include such a widget. For example, Samsung's TouchWiz overlay provides a similar looking functionality, although not as configurable or flexible as the one from CyanogenMod ROM. For other stock ROMs that don't have this feature built-in, 3rd-party apps (like the one you already tried) are the ...
