Can someone explain the purpose of hiding the status bar icons? Why even provide them if they're hidden most of the time? I know you're supposed to tap the screen so they appear -- why??? Is this to pacify habitual texters who have to be constantly pinging their screens so they don't experience withdrawal symptoms? All it does for me is make a smudgy screen just that much more smudgy. Does anyone know of an app that disables this hiding effect or overlays them?
