Tired of the $999 horns already? This iOS app hides the iPhone X notch

Yeah, you did drop a thousand dollars on that snazzy new iPhone X, but chances are you have not grown to love that notch. It's the weirdest aspect of this new iPhone, marring its otherwise clean aesthetics like a zit on sophomore high-schooler's forehead.
Thankfully, app developers have stepped up their game and have been developing ways to hide the display horns between two layers of inactive OLED pixels. You can do that with a cleverly-designed wallpapers, the kind that Notcho, a new app on the App Store, has in store.
iPhone X but also allows you to import any of your own pictures or images and... denotch-ify them. Rinse and repeat and you will hardly ever be bothered by the notch ever again, as far as your homescreen goes - the horns will still be present in apps.With Notcho, you might as well forget about the iPhone X's quirkiest feature. It does not only have a selection of carefully-crafted wallpapers for the

Not sure why Apple didn't do this from the off. It's as if they wanted it to look rubbish.

Because it's even uglier this way.

No it's not uglier. This should be from taking out of the box. But all UI should be in line with this too. Apple didn't do it, because in this case they couldn't call it 5.8 inch display, but more like 5.5". And that doesn't sond magical

What's wrong with the notch? It's the most optimized use of real estate in any phone. Apple could have easily made the phone with a large top bezel like the Samsungs and LGs. I like the looks of it and so do many people I know who have the iphone X. Seems like the whole "UGLY" notch thing is online propaganda fabricated by anti-apple guys.

The notch is bigger than the bezels on the Samsung and LG phones.... The Note 8, s8 and s8+, LG G6, and the LG V30 all have higher screen-to-body ratios than the iPhone X. Don't know where you got your information from except your own brainwashed, iSheep mind. No one likes the looks of it. Oh, calling it ugly is propaganda now? So none of us are allowed to have our own opinion unless it's something good about Apple? Oh, ok. Got it.

Apple just needs to redesign the screen period.

Hehe, nice hairpiece Apple! Where's the fake chin-beard to match? So pathetic! Those overly rounded corners suck azz as well, such a big waste of usable screen space. This phone has a significant bezel all around it that's 4mm on the sides and 3mm on top and bottom. And that's not even counting the humongous "notch" which on other phones is called... you guessed it, A FOCKIN BEZEL! Yet all you fanboi "tech writers" keep trying to lie by representing it as "bezeless". Who died and left you sleazoids in charge of changing the meaning of "bezeless"? Anyway, they should've named this cheesy hairpiece app "Notcho Cheese"... or better yet "Notcho Libre" since it frees you from the hideous notch! xD
