Edge Single Plus Mode

Edge Single Plus mode is supported in Galaxy S6 Edge M OS, and Galaxy S6 Edge+ M OS and Galaxy S7 Edge M OS.
Multiple Single Plus Panel can be supported for one packages but Single Mode(160 px) will be hidden automatically if App support Single Plus Panel.
Edge Feeds Mode
Edge Feeds Mode is similar with Edge Single Mode but with simpler information.
Edge Immersive Mode
You can use the extra edge screen as a sub-window for the main activity to offer wider views.
A screen with a 16:10 expanded view is provided by arranging components of each screen as Edge screen area. This is provided while a specific Application is running, or in a specific screen of the Application and once you get out of the screen or application, this automatically disappears.
Edge Single mode, Edge Single Plus mode, or Edge Feeds mode developed using the SDK may appear on the Lock and Cover of the device. Personal information may be displayed on the application. For privacy reasons, caution is advised.

- Only the same mode of Edge binaries can be registered under one content ID.
- For the multiple registrations, General binaries and Edge binaries cannot be registered at the same time.
- Edge function cannot be added to the registered general application.
