Run any other app-- Netflix, another reader, even the Gallery app for watching your side-loaded videos--and the grey bar never goes away.
No other app, apparently, can make the bar go away in full screen mode. Only the built in Amazon video viewer, and the Kindle App.
Apparently Amazon wants to make content you buy from them a little more attractive.
I find this evil, in an Apple or M$ish sort of way.
I find the grey bar terribly distracting.

P.S, and back closer to topic: In File Expert, once you tell it to always use a certain app to open files, how do you change your mind? I can't find a away to make it ask me to pick a different app.

[EDIT: A Netflix app update yesterday, 2/9, eliminated the grey bar! Nice! Now we know it's possible, I hope other apps will benefit from it soon too.]
