How to get the Galaxy S6 Edge colorful side glow notifications on any Android phone

How to get the Galaxy S6 edge colorful call notifications on any Android phone
The Galaxy S6 edge comes with a flexible AMOLED display that has a plastic, instead of glass substrate, and bends over both the left and right edges of the new flagship. Besides the cool factor, these can glow in different colors depending on who the caller is, for instance. You can assign your boss's incoming calls to glow in red, and your friend's in green, and so on. Thus, even if the S6 edge is lying flat and face down on the desk, you can immediately see who is calling.

As awesome as this may sound, it is a feature exclusive for the Galaxy S6 edge, and only if you shell out the Benjamin or so more, you will be entitled to use it, right? 

Wrong. As with everything new and exciting in Android, the side coloring notification feature has been quickly mimicked and adapted to grace other phones, too, and it is easy as pie to do it, even though, since your current handset's display isn't actually sloping on the sides, it won't be the real deal. A cool substitute, though, so here's what you need to do to get the S6 edge call color-coding goods:

1. Download the SideColorNotification.apk file to your handset, and install it;

2. Open the app, and you will see two variables - width and color;

3. Set the desired width of the two strips that will appear on both sides of your phone's display when someone calls, and their color (default is red);

4. Save the changes and call your phone - have fun! The developer promises that the next versions will include color-coding for notifications, too, so stay tuned.
