Notch Remover is another iOS app aiming to fill the iPhone X top

Another day, another iPhone X notch-modifier app gets the nod in the App Store. This time around it is simply called Notch Remover, and does what it says on the tin - takes any image you throw at it, and rounds it up to the nearest corner, placing one uninterrupted black bar at the top, as if you have a bezel without a cutout. 

It won't function in apps, of course, or anything like that, but will improve the look of the home and lock screens if you are not the notch-y type, as the fitting images can then go into your wallpaper sets. Needless to say, you will lose the bold, in-your-face "I'm an iPhone" statement that the X brings with it, and people won't know you are having the latest, most expensive iPhone, but something's gotta give if the notch goes against your day-to-day aesthetics.

You choose not to notice it, but it's there in your face there is no need to convince yourself otherwise. Coming back to the notch remover app, i think it's even uglier with the black bar what symmetry nonsense there is no symmetry with one side having a black bar. Leaving the notch the way it is is way better.

This exists because people actually don't like the notch design but purchase the device anyways. Why buy it if you don't like the look?

Because a lot of people want the latest and greatest iPhone and it's the only iPhone with FaceID/Animojis/Oled/Bezelless. So people are willing to make compromises

Bezel-less, sure, adding huge black tabs to the top of your phone to get rid of the ugly notch, don't know what to say about that. This app exists because people going the notch ugly.

Even if you include the huge black tab, it still has much lesser bezel and iPhone 8 Plus

Notch is the beauty of iPhone X. Android lovers don’t like it!!!! Sorry but do you have an iPhone X?

Notch is the beauty you say? Why have an app "featured" to mask it's existence?

Its uniqueness... I received my iPhone X few hours ago and directly fall in love with its design and especially this notch.

To each their own. If you love it enjoy it. Just be fair to others who say they love their devices even if you don't

But it's not really unique is it? Essential Phone had a cut out in the screen long before the iPhone X, try again.

Played with an iPhone X and the notch is annoying to look at. I also didn't like the software gestures. I won't tell anyone how to spend their money but 1k for this phone is too much in my opinion. ioS is still boring. I really hope they change it up next year or they release different designs.

You do know the best notch remover is a galaxy s8, right?

And the S8 have the Bixby button disabler. They sure like to copy themselves.

"17. cnour (Posts: 1840; Member since: 11 Sep 2014) Its uniqueness" Leprosy would make you quiet unique as well but i still would not want it.

I thought it was about the bezels? With that app, doesn't it make the iPhoneX screen look like huge bezels? LOL

The Verge is reporting that next year’s iPhone X plus to potentially sport a 6.5 in screen that keeps the notch. But with this app the real estate of the screen will still feel plus size.

Notch gives great look for iPhone X, been using one 3 days and it makes apps look very nice. Well it's not only the notch, it's the whole screen size which you get because of notch. That screen just blends so well into the device, actually it looks like it's top of that. It gives that 3D feeling.
