I like to hide the top toolbar when using Home ++. The only problem with this is that i no longer can see my handcent sms icon up top telling me how many txt messages i have. I have come up with this idea that should be incorporated into Home++ or some other application. look at the picture below. there is a red #1 next to the notification icon on the power strip (bottom of the screen). This is jsut an idea. the 1 can be placed in a dif spot of be different but something like i have below.
