While Apple iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users are trying out the new Dynamic Island feature, some app developers have been creating games around the new home screen design.
App developer Kriss Smolka has created a Pong-style game called Hit the Island. It challenges the user to bounce a ball between the paddle and the dynamic island to earn points.
“Who has an iPhone 14 Pro right now? Must test this on the device as soon as possible. Hit The Island – our game concept for iPhone 14 Pro, still delayed but turning out well,” he said in a tweet.
“As simple as it sounds, hit the island with the ball and score points. But wait, there’s a catch! The ball speeds up. It can be cloned. Then the bat shrinks!” according to the app in the iOS store.
Christian Selig, developer of the Apollo app for Reddit, added the fun option to keep a pixelated pet on the Dynamic Island while using the app.
“I found the best idea for the dynamic island on iPhone 14 Pro. I added a cat that lives up there like a Tamagotchi and just hangs out and does cute stuff while you browse Reddit on my app (Apollo),” Selig said.
The Dynamic Island enables new ways of interacting with iPhone, according to Apple, with a design that blurs the boundary between hardware and software and adapts in real time to show important alerts, notifications and activities.
With the introduction of Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less display real estate.
Without obstructing the on-screen content, the dynamic island maintains an active state to give 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 ridesharing with live activities can take advantage of Dynamic Island.
