    I purchased an "Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge" and would like to have some more "Edge-screen" applications installed. They are hard to find, since all those I have found only works for "Samsung Galaxy Note" - Where can I find "Edge Screen" application that can be used to "Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge"?

    Your best bet would be to ask in our S6 Edge forum - I'll ask one of the mods to move this thread there.

    I don't think there are very many for the S6 Edge though. Its edge screen is somewhat different from the Note Edge's.
  3. For best exposure ... moved to forum dedicated to the phone.

    Unfortunately, the edge on the Galaxy six edge is considerably different from the Note. It seems to be an extension of the main screen, where under certain conditions certain limited sections (the edges) light up. This limits the ability to write specialized software for the S6 edge. It's also, most probably, an hardware limitation. At present all available "apps" can only be reached through the Settings/Edge screen. Hopefully, this will change.

    Nice find. Holds out hope for independent (non-Samsung) edge-based apps. Unfortunately, these two particular apps in particular don't hold too much value (personal opinion) at the present time.
