If you have a new MacBook Pro, you also have a new notch. Congratulations!

Have you ever wondered what happens to your mouse while it's travelling underneath the notch? Notchmeister answers that question with exciting effects that take your Mac to a whole new dimension:

⁕ Glow - A cursor will light your way.

⁕ Cylon - By your command.

⁕ Plasma Leak - Your mouse can break down the magnetic containment field that keeps the M1‘s power in check!

⁕ Festive - Let your Mac celebrate the holidays the best way it can—in binary.

⁕ Nano Radar - Our patented invention lets you know exactly where your mouse has gone.

Notchmeister is also small and unobtrusive, both visually and with system resources. It's fun, but doesn't get in your way while you work.

And for those of you without a new MacBook Pro, Notchmeister also includes a genuine replacement notch. Be warned that side effects of this feature include making you want a new Mac even more than you already do. Sorry.

About Time For Fun

Kudos to a collection of developers who decided it's time to have fun once again! There used to be a Widget back in the days of Tiger that would allow you to surround your Dashboard with festive lights. This took me back almost two decades to a time when silly software was the norm - long before App Store approvals where everything was prim, proper and purposeful. Sometimes, it's just for fun!

Pretty cool

Thankfully I don't have one of the "new" Macbooks with that dreadful notch. Tried this on my Macbook Pro M1 and found it cringy to see that ugly notch. I am so glad that this was just software, and the software made it at least fun to use. Would like to see more themes but the ones it does have are pretty cool. If I ever become stupid and buy a Macbook Pro with that ugly notch I will definitely download this app again. Just wanted to check to see if this would make the notch less ugly and it did the trick. Great job.

Love it

Reminds me of a time in the past when whimsy iin software was more commonplace than it is today. I have no problem with the notch as it is, but this app adds a little sparkle that makes me smile - especially when I'm working on something and my cursor unexpectedly hits the notch. Thank you Iconfactory!

PS: I love Tot as well. Use it every day on every device.
