This simple homescreen widget will expand your status bar with a single press. Choose from 5 different styles and various colors.
You can now add the DropDown Widget as a shortcut instead of a widget by longpressing the homescreen and choosing "Shortcuts", then press "DropDown Widget" in the list. This will allow you to pin the icon to your dock with many of the third-party launchers available in the market (eg. LauncherPro, ADW, etc..) See the 3rd screenshot. You can download a pack of icons to use as shortcut icons here:
If you find this app useful consider purchasing the paid version, which is ad-free and includes additional widget styles.
Works on Android 1.6+
