cybereality i want to show the system bars on menus because not doing so would be a misuse of immersive mode:
Be mindful of how often users jump in and out of apps to check notifications, conduct impromptu searches, or other actions. Because using immersive causes users to lose easy access to system navigation, use immersive mode only when the benefit to the user experience goes beyond simply receiving a little extra space (such as to avoid accidental exits during a game or delivering a valuable immersive experience for images, videos, and books).
during the actual game, immersive mode brings the extra benefits:
- avoid accidental exits during a game
- delivering a valuable immersive experience for video(game)s
but in the menus, immersive mode doesn't bring these benefits:
in the level select or pause menu, players might want to check notifications, conduct impromptu searches, or other actions.
this is why showing the system bars during the game but not in the menus makes my app much friendlier to use, which is why i want to do it.
