The tech giant unveiled its new iPhone 14 series. The series consists of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus (a new addition to the series and a replacement for the iPhone Mini version), iPhone 14 Pro, and, on September 7, the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple also revealed its impressive and eye-catching feature called “Dynamic Island for Samsung Galaxy Tab S8” now supported by this model (SM-X700, SM-X706, SM-X706B, SM-X706U, SM-X706N), which this time makes excessive use of the pill-shaped notch.
The regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus still have the annoying notch like the iPhone 13 series, but this time the size of the notch is comparatively smaller. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max come with a pill-shaped cutout that gave birth to Dynamic Island for Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. Due to this, Dynamic Island only has support for these two variants.
Ever since Apple launched iPhone 14 Pro models with a dynamic island to hide the front-facing camera notch, developers have been busy trying to emulate the feature on Dynamic Island for Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Android phones. Earlier, MIUI developers managed to get Xiaomi phones running on Dynamic Island. Realme is also asking users if they want this feature. However, if you can’t wait to try out Dynamic Island for a Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Android device, you can now thank an app called DynamicSpot from Jawomo (h/t XDA Developers).
The multitasking tool lets you access recent notifications or phone status changes via a floating island at the top of the screen. Once set up, a DynamicSpot surrounds your Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Android phone’s front camera by default, but you can also change the position of the floating bar to your liking. This can be useful for users with larger phones.
We installed DynamicSpot on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and it worked as intended. Yes, the animations aren’t as smooth as what Apple offers, but there are plenty of customization options that let you choose what kind of notifications you see, resize the island, and show two pop-up notifications at once when they come. There is a $4.99 pro option that unlocks additional features and functionality working on Dynamic Island for Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, such as the ability to see DynamicSpot on the lock screen.
Keep in mind that you have to give the app full accessibility controls when setting up. This means the app can access and control everything on your phone’s screen. It may also track your interactions with apps or hardware sensors and interact with apps on your behalf. The developers claim that they do not collect user data and do not share your information with any third parties.
