Apple’s latest MacBook Pro made a big splash this year. While the machines were rented for their performance and features, the little, the black notch at the top of the devices received inordinate attention and created waves of controversial. You can like it. You can hate it. Whatever your position, you can now decorate it.

Developer Iconfactory delivered a virtual holiday giveaway to Apple users on Friday with the release of Notch master, a notched MacBook Pro app that, in the words of the developer, makes notches “become crazy.” With Notchmeister, users can put flashing Christmas lights on their notch, make their notch look like a plasma leak, adorn their notch with a beautiful purple glow, or simulate a “nano radar” that allows them to see where their the cursor is behind the notch, among others.

“Think of it as a fun way to spruce up your gash. Or as a screen saver for something you can’t see. Or, maybe, just an unnecessary waste of time, ”Iconfactory wrote in a blog post announcing the application.

Like a screensaver, Notchmeister doesn’t work all the time. It only appears when the app is open and you move your cursor over or near it. the notch. Considering the tendency of human beings to stop what they’re doing and look at flashing lights or whatever catches our eye, that’s a good thing.

If you have an older model of MacBook or MacBook Pro without a notch like yours, don’t worry, Notchmeister lets you know what it’s like to have a notch. The app creates an “authentic replacement notch” at the top of your screen and lets you have fun as well.

“Be warned that side effects of this feature include making you want a new Mac even more than you already do. Sorry,” Iconfactory said.

Fortunately, I did not experience this side effect (not have at least $ 1,999 spending on a new computer helps), but I finally learned what it’s like to have a cut on my old one Macbook Pro. And all I have to say is, really? Is that why everyone was fussing? Honestly, it’s really not that big of a deal.
