Airdrop App Makes MacBook Notch Useful

Most people are more or less over the iPhone’s display notch, the once-controversial design element introduced in 2017 with the iPhone X. year. At least until you see how useful it can be thanks to a app under development by Ian Keenwhich tries to turn the missing piece of screen into a feature that makes AirDropping files easier.

In a video posted to Twitter, the developer demonstrates how the app causes the notch to blink when the user drags AirDrop-compatible files. The idea is that these can then be dragged and dropped onto the notch itself, which will open a traditional AirDrop pane listing devices within range to which the files can be sent. It’s a handy shortcut compared to Apple’s official approach, which usually involves opening a file and navigating to the Share menu, Control-clicking the file, or navigating to the dedicated AirDrop section in Finder.

Keen’s app isn’t publicly available yet, but the developer says it hopes to have a limited version available on TestFlight the next few days† While it’s designed to work on notched MacBooks, he says it should work on notch-less Macs too.
