Before smartphones “all screen” or the appearance of “notch”, there was a trend that began with the Samsung Galaxy S6: smartphones with curved edges. In addition to providing a feeling of clean design and premium , Samsung added a very characteristic functionality: the edge apps .
In effect, this curved screen on Samsung smartphones had specialized software called Apps Edge. Basically, it allowed to establish shortcuts to applications , although as more terminals arrived from its family of range stops, new functions were added.
Specifically, this software also allows access to contacts, weather information, open a compass, etc. Initially, comes pre-installed in those terminals with curved screen , although more terminals (like the S8 and S9) can also find it in the Samsung application store, called Galaxy Apps.
According to The Android Soul , today Apps Edge has been updated to version 18.104.22.168, a version that is worth highlighting as it seems from now on allows you to open applications in format pop-up view , that is to say, to open it in a smaller window that can be displaced by tota the screen.
As we see in this capture, to open one of these Apps Edge applications in “pop-up view” format, we will have to keep pressing the icon of the application . If we only click once, it will open normally, in full screen.
Apparently, this update will progressively come to all terminals with Apps Edge support , that is, S7 Edge, S8 and S8 +, Note 8 and of course the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +. Take a look at the Galaxy Apps application to see if you already have it updated!
