Allow all app notifications to use Edge Lighting on curved Samsung phones with this app

Edge Lighting is one of the few features from Samsung that compliments the curved edge screens. It makes the sides of their curved phones glow when a notification comes in. It’s supposed to work with almost any app notification, but it’s specifically made for messaging apps. That’s why messaging apps typically are the most reliable to show up on the edges of your phone when the display is turned off.  The aptly named “Edge Lighting fix for all apps” makes it work for all apps by sending an Edge Lighting notification, essentially forcing the Edge Lighting to show up.

Without this app, only notifications from messaging apps will appear with the screen off. It’s been like that since Samsung first released Edge Lighting. Before this, if you wanted Edge Lighting for all apps, you would need one of those faux Always-on Display apps. These would leave the OLED displays completely black and light up small sections to show notifications, draining a lot of battery in the process. An app like this which just pushes the notification as an Edge Lighting notification is much better. This also works with Good Lock’s EdgeLighting+, which allows for you to have the Edge Lighting go around the hole punch on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy A8 devices.

If you want to install and use this app yourself, it’s on the Google Play Store. It is fairly simple to set up, but make sure to read the full app description. It will help you make sure the app works as it is intended with no issues. After you install the app, it will ask for notification access and then ask which apps you want to light up the Edge Lighting with the display off.

Having issues with features on your phone is annoying. Luckily for us, we have great developers like Zunderstruck who fix these issues for us. If you want to check this app out, download it below.
