    Hiding the navigation bar - yes, it can be done

    Apologies in advance if this isn't the right place to post this.

    I've looked through a lot of threads here over the last few days and I swear I saw someone asking if there's a way to hide the navigation bar at the bottom of Android 4.4.2 to get back some screen real estate in landscape mode.

    There is, if you're rooted.

    Head to the Play Store and install GMD Auto Hide Soft Keys.

    You can hide the navigation bar and make it reappear from the bottom or the side in landscape mode. You can also add or change the buttons that appear on the navigation bar.

    The app has been around for a while. I was using it on a 7" Asus Memo Pad two years ago.

    I tried it on the TF701T for about a day and it seemed to work fine.

    Thanks for moving this, janner43.

    Just so I get the forum etiquette right - this thread belongs in Development because you need to be rooted to use the app referenced?

    Would recommendations and thoughts on apps not needing rooting go in the general discussion forum or someplace else?

    I never quite got it together with a Palm device. I still have a Palm Pilot--but I never got the dock to connect it with a PC so it's more work than it's worth, entering ALL data by hand. Without an external keyboard, I might add: I have a cute little Palm folding keyboard but it doesn't fit my Pilot, the connector is different. And anyway, why carry another piece of electronics when I'm already lugging around a cell 'phone? With a pretty good camera?

    Essentially anything "not stock" goes in either Development or ROMS specific for the particular device - that would include apps that require root.
    Other than that, the section titles are pretty self explanatory
    We have separate "all device" sections in Asus Android Tablet General for games, apps etc.

    Hi Kevin,

    If yours says Palm Pilot (or just Pilot), then it's one of the first ones released. You've got a museum piece!

    You can likely find a cradle on eBay, but they were all serial connectors, at least for the vintage of your device.

    Sounds like your keyboard is the later Universal Connector. Seems there were adapters available back in the day.

    Yes, it is another device for me to carry, but the apps still work great and I'm not a big fan of the cloud.

    So do I.. there's nothing, anywhere, to replace one particular application I'm using all day.

    Tor,

    I've got to ask - what application?

    My daily ones are DateBk6, WordSmith, HanDBase, Bonsai (not so much on the Palm these days, but daily use of the PC app), and HandyShopper.

    I still use a Tungsten C, but went through a IIIx, IIIc, and Zire 71, with occasional use of a T|X and Dana Wireless. How about you?

    There aren't many of us Palm users left out there. :-(

    Hi janner43,

    I'm hijacking my own thread here as I need some admin help and am hoping you can help.

    I haven't been able to start a new thread since this one and the other one I did a couple of weeks ago. I can reply to existing ones, but can't start new ones. I can't even view the list of forums anymore. Is my account messed up in some way?

    When I go to transformerforums.com and log in, I get this message:

    I don't see a way to attach a screen cap of the message here, but I have one I can send you some other way if seeing the actual error screen helps.

    I've tried two different browsers on my laptop and tried from my TF701T and get the same message in all attempts.

    Here I thought I was being helpful to the group and instead appear to be banned. :-(


    Thank you,

    Steve
