    I'm a recent BlackBerry user and am loving it. However there is something which really annoys me: in certain menus, specially in sideloaded apps, there is a persistent bar with only the back button in the bottom of the screen. This takes a lot of space, specially in a 720x720 screen.

    Has anyone tried and been able to do something about this? Is it possible to replace this by the swiping from left to right movement?

    I already searched through the forum but didn't find what I was looking for.

    In case my explanation wasn't clear I attach 2 screen shots where you can seen the bar at the bottom I'm referring to.

    Swipe down from the top when you're in an Android app, it'll give you the option to hide or show the bar. Once it's hidden, swiping diagonally up and to the left, from the bottom middle of the phone acts as the back button. It's pretty rad.

    I'm on a Q10 and I have never been able to do the swiping thing to go back when hiding the back bar. I need a photo description or something, all then ends up happening is it minutes the screen
