Notchmeister app makes MacBook Pro Notch more fun

A new app from The Iconfactory has a new app — Notchmeister — that lets you add effects to the MacBook Pro’s notch, according to the initial report by MacRumors. This even includes a festive option with festive lights dangling from it.

The notch on the latest MacBook Pros was a last-minute rumor that turned out to be true. It has been received with mixed reception and many users are finding ways to hide or reduce its presence on the screen. However, the Notchmeister app goes in the opposite direction, allowing you to really draw attention to the feature.

With Notchmeister you can decorate the new notch of the MacBook Pro.

There are five different customizations in the Notchmeister app. They contain:

Glow: A white glow appears around the notch when you hover your cursor close to it. The glow around the mouse intensifies and moves with it.

Cylon:- A red dot scans back and forth on the notch. When you move the cursor next to it, the red dot stops and you can drag it back and forth. All Battlestar Galactica.

plasma leak: White sparks will shoot around the notch when you bring the cursor close to it.

Festive: Little Christmas lights dangle from the notch area when you hover the cursor over it.

Nano reader: The best way to describe this feature is in the app description itself. “Our patented invention lets you know exactly where your mouse has gone.” Essentially, a small X-ray band appears below the notch and hovers your cursor over the camera sensor and other components.

This app is clearly aimed at the latest MacBook Pros, but there is a simulation mode for older MacBooks, just in case you felt like you were missing something.

It’s a gimmicky and a little silly app, but it’s a free download and worth playing with. In our review of the MacBook Pro, we say of the notch: “I see it as a compromise, not a design bloom…it’s not a bad compromise. The notch seems more intrusive on the 14-inch model, which sits over the menu bar. has less room to accommodate the protrusion, we also say, “It’s the best MacBook Pro since 2015.”

Hopefully Notchmeister makes the bulky notch on the MacBook Pro a little more bearable.
