Touch The Notch Is A Fun App That Lets You Use Your Phone’s Notch For Various Tasks Such As Opening The Camera, Turning On The Flashlight, And A Lot More

It has been some time since the "notch," or whatever you might want to call it, made a mainstay on smartphones. While Apple has upgraded to Dynamic Island, a lot of Android phones are still using a simple hole punch cutout. And some crafty Android manufacturers have even created their own version of Dynamic Island. Now, Touch the Notch has come to rescue those feeling left out of all the functionality you might get from Dynamic Island.

Touch the Notch is a simple, lightweight app that works responsively and lets you add functionality to your phone's notch

The app is aptly named Touch the Notch, and it works surprisingly well; all you have to do is install it, grant the needed permissions, and you are all set. Frankly, I cannot find myself using the app often because using a phone has much to do with muscle memory, and I cannot train my fingers to remember that the notch now serves a purpose. Also, I am a bit too careful when it comes to touching the front camera/notch because of the fingerprints that stay there, but the app's concept is super cool.

You can see in the screenshots how you can go for single touch, long touch, double click, swipe left, and right. Honestly, with Touch the Notch, you have just unlocked a whole new level of customization, and guess what? All of them work surprisingly well. This is not the first time I have used an app like that, as similar apps have existed in the past, but what surprised me the most was how responsive this app really is. Whether you are opening the camera, turning the flashlight on, or opening some app, all the functions work as intended and are super responsive. Even haptic feedback tells you that you have touched the right spot.

Touch the Notch is completely free without any features locked behind a paywall. If you are looking to try it on your Android-powered device, you can download the app from Google Play Store, grant it some permissions, and you will be on your way.
