The presence of Android Status Bar can be a problem for some applications that do not activate the full screen mode, such as Amazon Kindle ebook reader. We have added the ability to hide and show the Android Status Bar in our Arctools application. This solution requires Arctools version 0.66 or a more recent version and a rooted firmware.
