The Icon Factory are the developers behind popular apps like Twitterrific, and know the Mac platform very well. Notchmeister, their newest free app, is a light-hearted companion for the notch on new MacBook Pro models. All it does is add some fun effects to the notch which work when you move the mouse close to it or under it.
Some of these effects include a glowing cursor, a plasma leak, and our favorite: festive, which adds lights that move with your mouse cursor. The Nano Radar is also a fun-filled one that provides an X-ray of where your mouse cursor is under the notch.
Here are all the effects as per the app’s release notes:
- 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.
For Macs that do not ship with a notch, Notchmeister adds a fake “genuine replacement notch”, which lets you enjoy the effects. The notch only appears when the app is active so that it does not interfere with any other apps that you might be using.
Notchmeister is a free app available in the Mac App Store. Give it a try if you are looking to have some fun with the notch on your MacBook Pro.
