"Ridiculous amount of customization. Works awesomely! I have a transparent status bar and I love being able to customize completely how the date looks."

"I downloaded TimeBar a few days ago and love the app. I searched all over the web for ways to cover up the stock WiFi icon on the status bar."

"Clever Dev, no doubt. I have a custom time and date on my status bar, always visible, in the position where the stock time would be. Common sense to me :)"

Display the time and date in any format. Show the current battery, cellular, or WiFi numeric percentages near the time or anywhere on your screen. Add local weather info such as the outdoor temperature. Unlike similar apps, nothing is required in the slide down notification menu, which keeps things looking clean and great. TimeBar is not a status bar replacement, yet rich customization options allow it to blend in seamlessly while using stock status bar icons.

Android™ enforces a few limits on this revolutionary new floating window app:

1.) TimeBar can't move out of the way automatically to make room for icons in your status bar. However, this is not a problem when you use the recommended option of placing TimeBar on top of your existing status bar clock.

2.) In rare cases, TimeBar can't cover the status bar clock if your phone doesn't have physical hardware buttons (home/back). Since most phones and tablets have these buttons, this usually is not a problem.

3.) On a small number of devices, TimeBar might not hide automatically in a full screen app, however there are many options to hide it manually.

Great app! TimeBar enabled me to configure a centered clock with the day of the week, month, date, year and time of day including a.m/p.m. I was even able to put my name underneath! The interface might be a bit confusing initially and the myriad of options is a plus/ minus depending on the user's skill or interest level. After configuring it is automatic and your settings can be backed up or restored with one click.... a thoughtful feature. No conflicts or glitches and it is free!!

Bobbie Freese

Great What I really need is a way to color the whole status bar to black with white letters.

Daniel Cardoso

Brilliant Ideal for me when watching a film during my breaks at work. Now I don't need to pull the notification bar to see the time, or the date, or the weather, or the battery... Anyway there is loads of settings to fiddle with and, if something doesn't work, the developer is quick to answer any questions one may have.

Timebar Status Bar Date & Time Provides tools to theme items in status bar which cm 12.1 can't. The Pro version is just what I needed and fairly easy to use. I haven't used it long enough to give it 5 stars but if it continues to play well with cm rom I'll give it full 5. Running g900f on cm 12.1 nightly (05/11).

Tommy Hemmert Olesen

Nice little app Very confusing to set up, but once you get the idea, you can customise everything. Its quite powerful, like adding a "always show clock in status bar on lockscreen"

Larry Chan

Some bugs This is a good app but there are some bugs on my phone even after setting the perimeters. How can i elaborate in detail to you? Any way to feedback to you?

Jacky Kung

Exactly what I need. Thank you, this app is very useful.

Shehzad Ahmed

Nice App Beautiful work deeply appreciated

Tony Cavill

Very comprehensive A little fiddly, but you can tweak just about any parameter of the date display.

Jim Drake


kamalneet kalsi

Good app Very interesting ap

don rademacher

Well Done. Blends in seamlessly with the rest of the status bar. Very nice to be able to customize the date and time; even provides display of seconds. The way it ought to be designed from the beginning.

Steve Decker

Stop with the constant status notification! Every 20 minutes, a status message gets entered that says "Show TimeBar"! It doesn't do anything when I click on it! I'm uninstalling because it's more annoying than its worth having a date on your status bar which isn't there half of the time!

Esther T

Great App! Finally, I was able to play and tweak the settings of my clock using this app. This is my first time using an Android and customize an app within. I must say it was easy to use I just simply followed the directions. This little app offers many features such as time format, fonts, colors etc. It's within each users grasp to customize it according to their personal preference. The best part of this app is it's for free. Now, you can't beat that!

Lynn Nicholls

Very cool! I wish I had found this a long time ago.

Flying Dutchman

Having seen screen shots of the date, time and temperature all at once made me want this app. Messed with app for an hour and couldn't figured it out. After receiving an email from the developer, my problem has been resolved. Great app. Perfect solution for having to constantly unlock your phone just to obtain simple information. Definitely recommend this one.

C Banks

Looking good on my LG G3 I like this better than my out of the box display

D. Ryan Leask-Writer

This little app is fantastic

rich r

Fantastic Does what it says! It was very easy for me to set up.


Thanks Date and temp nice to see

(Edited) Replaces TimeBot? Confusing... Thanks for the quick reply. I guess what confused me is how this 'just happened' and how TimeBar has a button saying "Purchase" -- giving the impression that there unlockable features (like TimeBot) and that we would need to do that again. In my opinion, if that button is called "Donate" then I think there is less room for misunderstanding.. I forgot how much the paid version of TimeBot costed. But I guess some people (including me) would be happy enough to not have the refund of TimeBot and have it treated as the "Purchase/Donate" of TimeBar -- assuming you guys are happy with it. Because some people (like me) like to remove the "Buy/Purchase/Upgrade/etc" buttons of Apps that we keep/like. Especially I personally really like TimeBot/TimeBar because how useful and convenient it is by being able to display additional (and highly configurable) information you need in all screens supporting the default status bar. So I am really all for paying/donating for it -- just not twice.

Cool It does what it says. It's features are pretty cool, I'm sure if you continue developing it it will be perfect. It doesn't work well with screen overlays and doesn't always line up with the battery indicator.

Stefan Gadecki

Excellent! This is exactly what I have been looking for to add a date to my status bar in exactly the way I want it!! Would give it 6 stars if I could!!!

Kevin Eubanks

Great App! This is the best replacement for the standard time in the status bar. Very flexible and informative.

Good upgrade Better than timebot as setup is noticeably easier. Good product. I contacted the dev last year and he helped me out with a custom setting.

Yue Kiat Tan

Ridiculous to Pay Again to Unlock Features I paid for the Premium edition of TimeBot, and fine they made it free, and now I've to pay for the same thing again. It's good yes, and I don't mind chipping it more, but not when I'm pissed off being needed or forced to pay again.

Gina Zalner

A little confusing... For me it was difficult to make head or tails of the menu and customization. The only thing I was able to accomplish was putting the date & time in a pretty color. I'm sure it is a great app but a little too complicated for me.

Sam Sintez

Diy You must have straight hands for this )

Oleg Romanenko

Not bad Please add Russian!

Jacky Kung

Thank you, this app is very useful. However there is an issue - the seconds clock never refreshes and it just shows "18:55:00" then jumps to "18:56:00". Is there a way to fix this?

Lydia Wardeh

Love this!

Mandar Karhade

Great potential for a "rootless" customization app. One suggestion though; Rather than making each floating window with "top" and "bottom" lines; can you make an option to just have one line? Aligning the text with two lines becomes impossible. Note4-Android 5.0.1 Btw fonts are going in negative numbers for size. You might want to add a negative restraint on those. Can you please provide video tutorial somewhere? Definitely an app to look forward to. Best luck

Chris Lau Cheuk Hay

Great alternative to the xposed means Since I just switched to cm12 on my device and cannot use gravitybox to put the date on the statusbar anymore, I searched on the internet and found this. Pretty much does the job well. Just one question: is there any way to adjust the font size of different portions of the string within the same line? I would like to make the date smaller than the time but seems like there isn't such an option.

Jayant Kulkarni

Slowing down screen operations Seconds are not updated. Any updates to any settings takes lot if time. Fixing these issues would help us. Uninstalling now.

Kimi O

Some glitches The clock sometimes blinks and it also covers some fullscreen apps like YouTube.

Nancy Labadens

Great feature / app! and no fuss on the lockscreen - clean! thank you.

Omri Rosen

Great app. if it was support in hebrew its was much grater.

Matt Leger

Just what I was looking for! Could use one or two less monospaced, narrower fonts, but otherwise a great little app so far. An amazing amount of details about the interface can be customized with this software.

Stewie Williamson

Not bad app to try out on the droid turbo : )

dan Bdan

seems good working on m8 thanks...but config a bit tricky

Iqbal Hussain

Was great! Now refuses to refresh!

Victor Kruger

Incredible Far better & with way more features than most similar paid apps. Almost perfect, it's a testament to the imagination, talent & generosity of the developer.

Dave Oswald

Great Exactly what I was looking for

Vilas Khamkar

Great App Very much useful.

Shawn Redmond

So much to play with... The floating window idea is brilliant. My only issue is that the tail of letters that pass below the baseline like 'y' and 'p' get clipped. I would prefer to have them pass through the second line. Do you have any plans to integrate tasker support? I can think of so many things I would do with it.

Farhan Usman T.K

Keeps crashing It is a great app. I used it to cover my blue clock of Jelly bean. But it keeps crashing.

Marcya Nook

Thank You! A bit confusing in the beginning but more that worth it! I've tried so many apps, some very good, but this is the best at this job. Looking eagerly for more from you guys!

Matthew Howell

So far so good I'm trying it out

Timothy Kisling

Awesome app. "donation sent by user" A lot of new things I have learned personalizing my phone.

Marian Pisarcik

Almost perfect Highly customizable. But it is still displayed in fullscreen apps

Philip Vonleu

perfecto only app with year in statusbar great for screenshots with full date stamp

Michael Bull

Love love love this app Just sent a donation after downloading. This is by far the best add date to status bar app on the Play Store and a lot more. Works like a root app on non-rooted phones. Fully customizable and I mean fully!! Look no further than this!! Thank you for this application!! Cheers!!

William Steele

Worked once I figured out what it was good for After playing with it for a while, I figured out that it wouldn't work to replace my clock but I could use it to add the date to my status bar. The only issue I see is, it blinks when changing screens (from lock screen to home screen...). This is a great app.

Shawn Redmond

Still the best piece of eye-candy on Lollipop. But you need a rooted device with FSBI installed in order to take advantage of the awesomeness. The developer isn't responding to his emails. I do hope he has released his source somewhere so we can work on making this viable for the average user again.

Jennifer Bradshaw

Does this work on Android 6? I can't make it work. I don't have physical home key etc

Phillip Chan

Love this app. After 2 months in, still Great. The customization of all the following : location, the colour , the content, the font size make this app perfect for my Android device.

Sysroot 1

Superb Genius app. The developper has thought of everything :-)

Alyssa Chambers

Super easy to use with all of the customizations I was looking for. Time quotes are clever too!

Febhy Fn

It would be very nice if this can moded signal and battery icons..

Najmuddin Nomani

Great Can it have internet speed display

Robert Collesano

Adjustable Time And Date Awesome and Utilitarian
