Kindly add the option to show top bar in fullscreen but system bars and answer buttons are hidden. The top bar shows timer as well as the option choosen as answer through the dots. This makes especially useful when using a controller.

The top bar I am referring to I have circled in the picture below.

It will eventually be implemented together with the new reviewer.

Until it isn’t, there are third-party solutions for hiding the status bar (i.e. Immersive mode) when you open the app, then showing it back when leaving, like Tasker.

I am talking specifically about the top bar of ankidroid itself. Currently there are three options when you choose fullscreen in ankidroid, namely -Off -Hide the system bars -Hide the system bars and answer buttons. What I am proposing is a fourth option where you Hide the system bars and answer buttons but not the top bar of Ankidroid itself i.e. the bar which shows timer, flag, whether card is marked or not and answer option choosen through the number and color of dots.

Answer Buttons position > None replicates that
