Surprise for Android Users!
Some of you already know that Apple showed off its new iPhone 14 series last week. Even if you don’t like Apple, you’ve probably heard of the iPhone 14 series because Samsung has been making fun of it.
Dynamic Island is one of the new “innovative” features that the latest phones have. The last one is a notification area near the cutout for the selfie camera that can grow to show more information.
How can Android users avail this new feature?
Android devices don’t have anything like Dynamic Island. However, the great thing about the Android platform is that it’s much more open to third-party app developers. Someone made an Android device with a notification area that looks like Dynamic Island.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max from Apple not only have updated hardware, but they also have a new look. Dynamic Island has been praised and criticized since it’s just a piece of software. Moreover, it was only a matter of time before it appeared on Android phones. Thanks to dynamic spot from Jawomo, you can also get smart notifications on your phone.
How can Android users purchase it?
The developer’s newest app, which is still in beta, has some of the best parts of Apple’s Dynamic Island and lets you customize it on your Android Phone. You can choose what notifications appear on your screen with dynamic spots. You will also be able to change how the emotional area looks. For example, you can change where, how big, and how rounded the edges are. You can even choose to have it show two pop-up alerts when new messages arrive.
You can pay $4.99 to upgrade to the app’s pro version if you want more features on your android. The paid version will give the user access to new features, such as showing the dynamic spot on the lock screen, single tap, and long press actions. Jawomo is a long-time developer behind the AOD notification light apps for Samsung and OnePlus devices and the Bixby button remapper.
When will it be available for use?
Again, the app is in beta right now, so not everything will be perfect. The developer says that animations might not always be smooth and that there might be some problems with how healthy apps work together. But most of the time, when I test it out, it seems to work well. Notifications appear on the dynamicSpot; they expand into previews when I hold them, and so on. If interested, you can also try the beta version, available through the Google Play Store on your android.
The app is free and doesn’t have ads, but it’s still being worked on, so if you see something that doesn’t seem to be working right, it might be a good idea to let the developers know.
