The company a short while ago current its Edge Launcher, which indicates those utilizing the typical U11 can consider advantage of the new attribute.
The update does not alter the Edge Launcher’s core features. You can nonetheless squeeze the phones’ sides to provide up a Lazy Susan of apps, contacts, and brief configurations. Looking like a mishmash of Samsung’s App Edge display and a little something like Paranoid Android’s pie-wheel controls, the radial menu is customizable with up to 5 stages.
Where by items begin to differ is with customization. You can now tap and maintain the icons to reposition them, just in case you use specified apps and shortcuts far more than other people. People shortcut alternatives got a little bit far more numerous, as you can now pick battery saver, car-rotate, and Wi-Fi hotspot shortcuts.
Also, you can now use Edge Launcher from the lock display. In advance of the update, you could only provide up the Edge Launcher radial menu when the telephone was unlocked.
