    Apple launched the iPhone 14 Pro Dynamic Island recently and it has caught the attention of all smartphone lovers. And now, an Android app has released a Dynamic Island of its own on the Google Play Store. It says it is better than Apple's Dynamic Island. The name of the app is "dynamicSpot." The app has already received more than 100K downloads. According to the app's description on Play Store, The dynamicSpot is still under development and with the early access you will get to try the app and give feedback.

    "When you sign up for early access, you will get to try the app before most people, and you can give feedback directly to the developer. Google Play will automatically collect data about how you use the app and share that data with the developer to help them improve the app," the app informed.

    As per the information, dynamicSpot will give the Android users Dynamic Island mini multitasking feature, making it easier to access recent notifications or phone status changes. "Just tap on the little black popup to open the displayed app, long press the popup to expand it and view more details," the app's description read.

    It further stated that iPhone's Dynamic Island is not customizable, but dynamicSpot is as the users will be able to change interaction settings, select when to show or hide the popup or which apps should appear. As dynamicSpot uses Android's notification system it is compatible with almost all apps, like messaging notification, timer apps and even music apps.

    "The app is in early beta stage, if you have any feature requests or bug reports, please use the beta feedback in google play store. Thanks!," the description read.

    Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max

    The Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shows important alerts, notifications, and activities in real time. With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less of the display area. "Without impeding content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state to allow users easier access to controls with a simple tap-and-hold. Ongoing background activities like Maps, Music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information like sports scores and ride-sharing with Live Activities can take advantage of the Dynamic Island," Apple said.

    "On iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, you can check alerts and current activity in progress—such as music that's playing, your timer, an AirDrop connection, and directions from Maps—in the Dynamic Island on the Home Screen or in any app. The Dynamic Island appears whenever your iPhone is unlocked. Touch and hold the Dynamic Island to expand it and see more details about the activity," it added.
