Although the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a speedy device, one feature that feels a bit slow is swiping down from the Status bar to see the Notification tray when I'm using a full-screen app. When a full-screen app is open, I have to swipe down not once, but TWICE, on the upper portion of the screen in order to bring down the Notification tray.
Yes, you have to swipe down twice.
While it may at first sound trivial, I enjoy doing things the quickest way possible, and I'm sure you do too. So, what if instead of swiping down twice you could just swipe down once to view the Notification tray?
Swipe Status Bar lets you toggle whether you want a one- or two-finger swipe down in order to bring the Notification menu down, something that could be important for gamers playing in full-screen mode.
You can tinker with the settings, such as a vibration feedback when the menu is being pulled down, as well as accessing the Quick Settings panel by swiping on the right side of the device.
I've used the feature on a few apps, and it works well with the fluidity I'm accustomed to with everything else on the Galaxy Note 2. What do you think of it?
