It seems like heads-up notifications have been with us for forever now, even though they were actually introduced with Android 5.0 Lollipop all the way back in 2014. Before then, though, we used to have something called a “notification ticker” that would show a preview of incoming notifications within the status bar when they arrived. Although this feature has long been forgotten, many have tried to bring back this functionality using third-party apps. We previously detailed a workaround using the automation app Tasker, but if you want a solution that’s a bit simpler to set up, check out an app called “Super Status Bar.”

Everything about the app and its tweaks is fully customizable, making it easy to change things to the way that you like.
Apply styles such as iOS 13 status bar, MIUI 11 and Android Q.


  • Easily change brightness and volume just by swiping along the status bar
  • Includes: Brightness control as well as music/media, ring, notification, voice call and alarm volumes
  • Able to automatically detect the type of sound playing. If you’re listening to music, swiping along the status bar will change your music volume
