With ICS, there is a feature called 'Lights Out' mode which enables you to hide the bottom bar (home, clock, ect) and the app can use this space is Light Out is written into the app. Does CR support this feature?

From my understanding the system bar can only be dimmed (which is supported and can be turned on/off in the settings).
To my knowledge you can never use the space of the system bar to display anything else.

Thanks for the reply. From what I have read, apps can use that space in Full Screen mode if Lights Out Mode in enabled in Android 4.0 and the apps supports it.

Here is the option (not my pic)

From another forum:

So with this feature in ICS enabled rather than see the 3 dimmed dots, the bar will go away

Now if I understand this correctly, this is a system setting that will hide the bar when dimmed. ComicRack can dim, so with this setting enabled the bar should go away :)

Great, thanks for the info!

Edit, I just took the update, and confirm it does work for Comic Rack!

Awesome app!

Thanks again!
