The biggest new feature on the iPhone 14 Pro — the ‘Dynamic Island’ — is now available for Android phones too, thanks to a copycat app

  • Android developer Jawomo has released a copycat version of the iPhone 14 Pro’s new multitasking feature.

  • “Dynamic Island” is only available for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

  • The copycat version, called dynamicSpot, was created to address the need for a “camera island” on Android phones.

Thanks to Jawomo, an Android developer who released features such as notification lights and audio reminders, the new iPhone 14 Pro feature, Dynamic Island, is now available to Android users through a release. imitated on Google Play.

The copious version, called dynamicSpot, has already been downloaded over 100,000 times.

“On Android, we don’t have camera islands, but camera spots/cutouts. So that’s when DynamicSpot was born,” Jawomo wrote in an online developer forum. “iPhone’s dynamic island isn’t customizable, but dynamicSpot is! You can change interaction settings, select when to show or hide the popup or which apps should appear.”

Android phone users who jumped at the chance have already flocked to the forum to share their thoughts.

Apple announced the Dynamic Island earlier this month in a video preview of the feature – though not revealing much other than visuals. Dynamic Island is only available on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which the company described in an announcement as “a new design that introduces an intuitive way to experience iPhone.”
