The BlackBerry KEYone has a slew of amazing built-in options for easy access — from the keyboard shortcuts to the customizable convenience key — that you can set up for instant access to almost anything on your KEYone. Did you know that you can also easily access your notifications dropdown with just a tap of the keyboard?

As forums member tp2386 points out, you can use an app called Pull Down Status Bar that lets you have instant access to your notifications. All you need to do is install the app, then set it as the shortcut for one of your keyboard keys or your convenience key — it's that simple. When you press your chosen key, your notification shade will drop down giving you quick access no matter where you are on your device.

You can grab Pull Down Status Bar totally free from the link below. If you need help getting it setup, swing by the forums and let us know!
