I had previously expressed reservations about this plugin. The plugin author addressed my concerns and it has become a terrifically helpful plugin. 1) It is not responsive. Although WP makes the WP admin bar larger for tablet-size (portrait) pages and smaller phone-size pages, so that the icons are more touch-friendly, this plugin does not adjust for that. The offset of the "hidden" admin bar remains tied to the standard 32px WP admin bar even when the larger admin bar is present on mobile devices. Therefore the 'hide on hover' feature does not work right on small screens; it does not offset enough to hide, and rather only hides half of it. This should not be too hard to fix - I think that the style rules that get added to the head need to have a breakpoint media query - but it remains an issue. Problem solved! 2) Although I've posted about this on the plugin's forum, I've gotten no response at all for several weeks now. The plugin author responded to my questions and suggestions; thanks. 3) Not as important, but another feature that would also be helpful: a small delay requiring that a mouse hover over the top pixels for a second or so before the admin bar is shown. This would prevent the admin bar from appearing every single time that you "reach" your mouse for something above the page such as another tab or browser control. The 'hidden' admin bar is forever flashing into view as I mouse towards my tabs, back-button, address bar and etc. The author took my suggestion and implemented it! Thanks! I have happily changed my rating to 5 stars. This is a very helpful plugin if your site uses a fixed position or sticky header or navigation. I'll be happy to be able to change this to 4 or 5 stars if these issues are addressed.

Does exactly what I needed it for and more. Great job with the auto hide, this plus a 0% opacity works GREAT!
