2. Hit the island

Hit the Island is a fun game that takes the tried and true “Pong” and turns it into a fun little game against the iPhone’s pill cutout. Basically you have a paddle here that you can move around to hit the ball. Every time the ball hits the pill, you get a point, and after every 10 points the speed of the ball increases. Sometimes the ball will even split in half, and over time the paddle will shrink as well. The game gets really hard once you cross 30-40 points, so if you hit anything over 45 points, you’ll probably be in the top 1% of players, as you can see on the leaderboard.

3. Apollo for Reddit

Apollo is an app that most Reddit users will recognize immediately. It is one of the best third-party Reddit clients and has tons of features. Now the developer has added a fun little Dynamic Island Zoo to the app. With this, you can “adopt” a pixel-friendly animal that lives on top of your iPhone’s pill cutout. The default is a cat, but you can change it to a dog as well. Also, there are other animals including a fox and an axolotl, but to use them you need to unlock the premium version of the app.
