Good app serves its purpose but...

For some odd reason, after a few days the image I place below the notch to leave a black bar at the top to make the notch unnoticeable begins to drift back up into the notch a little bit. I can re-do the image but a few days later it starts happening again. Not sure why?

Developer Response ,

This is actually a glitch in iOS. The iOS animations (opening the lock / home screen) will sporadically shift the placement of the wallpaper.

I recently got the iPhone X and was happy about it but the one thing I didn’t like was the notch. It just bugged me a lot. I like things to be really simple. All the previous phones were very classic and I wished they didn’t introduce the notch.

Luckily I found this. This is a clever way to get rid of it. It makes the iPhone look like an iPhone! 📱 I usually look at reviews before I purchase any app and I saw a few comments that made me doubt if I should get it or not. Eventually I ended up trusting my gut and bought it.

It is a simple app, but it is super easy to understand and use. I also love ❤️ the fact that it’s NOT loaded with ads like so many other apps. It does what it is supposed to do and does it very well. I don’t know what other people are talking about this app not working. I’m not a gadget person but I still understood what this app is supposed to do (especially after watching the tutorial).

Just putting it out there for the people who are confused, this app doesn’t cover the notch in other apps it’s a wallpaper app that covers the notch in the main and lock screen.

Overall, I am in love 😍 with this app. I recommend it to anyone who has an IPHONE X!!

Simple, perfect

This app does precisely what it’s supposed to. Allows you to format a background image with a black bar at the top to effectively “hide” the notch when viewing the lock screen or home screen. It doesn’t remove the notch in-app. It doesn’t claim to. It can’t possibly do that. But what it does, it does well. I especially like the option of the few different styles of black bar it offers, including square, rounded, and fade (fade is my favorite).
