The notch on iPhone X has worked like a sting in the tail. People were all gaga over this most advanced phone in the world. And it was quite obvious that iPhone lovers would go for this device quickly after its release. But when they began to use the phone, they realize that its camera array hinders their iPhone X experience especially while they are watching videos on YouTube or movies or browsing photos and web. So much so, this notch hides scroll bar when users hold this iPhone X in horizontal mode. Until Apple does anything for this, you have to remove or hide iPhone X notch from home screen and lock screen.
Cromulent Labs has come up with a simple and easy solution: Notcho. It is an app that works only with wallpapers on the home screen and lock screen of your iPhone X. Notcho will not work in apps. Want to use this app on your iPhone X?
