I have never personally been a fan of on screen navigation keys as it takes away precious screen estate that may be otherwise utilized. However, with Android Kitkat 4.4, Google introduced a rather cool feature called the ‘Immersive Mode’. This feature did not get the sort of attention it deserves, yet it was a step in the right direction just like ART runtime. However, to start with only a few apps like Google Search, MX Player, Hangouts etc support immersive mode taking away the charm of the whole feature at least in the today of the Android world.
If you are looking to enable Immersive Mode across your device that is running Android 4.4, then Immersive Full Screen Mode is the perfect application for you. The application is available for Rs 84 in the Google Play Store and certainly is worth picking up.

The application is extremely simple to use and you simply have to turn Immersive Mode on from within the application to turn it on for all the applications. Certain apps that require keyboards though, such as third party SMS app do have issues with this application in otherwise a flawless experience. You can also add a notification icon in the Notification Bar to quickly enter the Immersive Mode using the application. Not just this, you can also add in a list of applications in the settings which will automatically open in Immersive Mode. The application also gives you an option of either showing or hiding away the Notification Bar on top. There is also a widget to help you toggle the mode right from the desktop too.
The application does not require rooting or any other complicated procedure, nor does it tamper with the warranty of the device. Installing and Uninstalling the application is exactly like any other application. If you are into the whole rooting your device game, then you might want to install “Immerse Me” module using Xposed Framework which serves exactly the same purpose.
