The Apollo app adds ‘pixel pals’ to the iPhone 14 Pro dynamic island
The popular Reddit app Apollo was updated today with support for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, and Apollo developer Christian Selig decided to implement a fun little feature for the dynamic island – a “tamagotchi”.
The app update adds a small creature to the top of the dynamic island on newer iPhone models. It can be customized into a cat, dog, hedgehog, fox or axolotl, and the little creature moves around the dynamic island while you browse Reddit.
A new “Dynamic Island Zoo” option has been selected for Apollo and is available with the latest version of the app. Selig also added the little creatures as lock screen widgets, so even those who don’t have an iPhone with a dynamic island can add a critter to their device.
Earlier this week, Apollo was updated with iOS 16 support, so there are also several other Reddit-related widgets available for those running the iOS 16– operating system.
