Create Mobile Apps that Support the Notch and Display Cutouts



  • More and more mobile devices feature a notch (or display cutout, as it is called on Android). This little monster brings many new challenges for mobile app developers.

    “How hard can it be to support the notch – maybe one or two days to optimize existing apps for it?”
    That’s what we initially thought. As it turned out, it was a lot harder than expected. We ran into many bumps along the road of porting 20+ apps & games to properly support it.

    Along the way, we modified all the components of V-Play Engine for Qt-based mobile apps and games. It now supports the notch out-of-the-box, so you don’t need to go through this „notch hell“ yourself. :)

    To help you support the notch in your mobile apps, we prepared the following „Guide to Survive the Notch“:
