Description

NOW you can check on your notifications even when you are playing a full screen game! With Bird Bar, all you need to do is swipe from off the edge of your screen onto the screen. It's sort of like you are already doing, except you don't need to see the notification bar or status bar to do it and it works from any side of the screen!

NOW, while you are waiting for a text message or email and playing an awesome game of Angry Birds, you can quickly glance at your notifications to see if the correct one came in, and then get right back into the game without every leaving and screwing up your progress. BirdBar works with all fullscreen applications and games, including movies and popular games like Plants vs Zombies.

The premium version adds popup notifications and lets you fine tune features like sensitivity or visibility. So if you don't like the visibility of top curve or the sensitivity of the all sides default, then the premium version is probably right up your alley.

****FEATURES
**Simple swiping from any edge of the screen to show your notification drawer. Now you can check your notifications when you hear a sound or feel a vibration while you are playing a game without messing up your progress.
**Two presets: The original invisible mode that lets you swipe from any edge of the screen. And a NEW much more sensitive AND visible mode for swiping from the top and top corners.
**No ads or internet permissions! It's not a shady app :)

The LITE version provides everything mentioned above with no ads, but with very limited customizations. You get a choice of the classic, swipe from any direction with medium sensitivity option or a new one that makes the swipes corners visible, increases the sensitivity, and only makes the top and top sides swipable.

If you upgrade to the premium version, you get a ton of preferences to modify. You can tweak what sides can trigger the notification, change the sensitivity, have it start on boot, and even show which sides can be hit. Now with 1.2.0 you can anchor and resize the sides. More preferences have already been requested and are on the way.

Thanks,
Mike dg
