Description

A message from the idiot that wrote this program:
Status has not been abandoned, but is now incompatible with a growing range of devices due to a variety of problems. Unfortunately, there is nothing that I or any other developer can do to prevent this. If the Play Store says that your device is incompatible, then there is nothing that I can do to help you other than point you to one of the links below about why it will not function.

Android O is Breaking Apps that Overlay on top of the Status Bar


https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/36574245

Status will continue to receive support for devices below Android Oreo for as long as it remains in the interest of the community.

Status is a status bar replacement that draws an overlay on top of the system-generated status bar. This means that the actual status bar is only hidden under the replacement; touch gestures are not overridden, and the standard notification panel is still shown. It needs a lot of permissions in order to obtain the information needed to display in the status bar. These are listed below.

Permissions:
– Accessibility Service: used to attempt to get the status bar color of the current app if the ‘status bar coloring’ preference is enabled.
– Notification Access: used to get the icons of the current notifications.
– System Alert Window, System Overlay Window: used to draw the status bar above all other apps.
– Battery Stats: used to find if the battery is charging and what percent it is at.
– Network State, Phone State: gets the type and connection of the phone network, and if airplane mode is enabled.
– Wifi State: finds if wifi is enabled and how good the connection is.
– Bluetooth: find if bluetooth is enabled & connected or not.
– Location Services: finds if GPS is enabled.
– Alarm: find if an alarm is set.
– External Storage: backup/restore all settings from a file.
