    This is an app made with Tasker , that automates the launch of the native edge cocktailbar service on your device! After configuring your feeds, RuggedHunter's AutoCocktail will automatically scroll to the briefings feed when you receive any new notification! If you've ever thought it would be useful to have your notifications appear on the edge when your display is off...ever wished to make the night clock active all day instead of just 12 hours...this app is for you!

    * Choose specific apps to trigger on!
    * Set independent edge brightness!
    * Choose your theme!


    I have decided to make a limited free version (no ads) and a full donate version. You may download the full version from PLAY STORE and upgrade instantly, or you may donate any amount via PAYPAL and pm me your transaction id to receive a link for full version. There are always some minor bugs. I would appreciate greatly if you would report any bugs in this thread rather than in a play store review. Please rate the app 5 stars and leave a positive comment!

    Notifications Only:
    This feature is only available in the donate version
    AutoCocktail will not launch the edge cocktailbar until a new notification is received.
    When notification is received you will see the native clock & weather feed briefly before AutoCocktail scrolls to your briefing feed.
    The feed will turn off after the AutoCocktail timeout has expired.

    Clock Always On:
    AutoCocktail will automatically launch the native clock & weather feed when the display turns off.
    The clock & weather feed will stay on for as long as you set the timeout in Edge Settings > Information Stream > Edge Screen Timeout
    AutoCocktail will then automatically relaunch the clock & weather feed.
    AutoCocktail will turn off the feed when the proximity sensor is covered and restart it when uncovered. (Saves battery when device is in your pocket and easily restores the clock & weather after manually scrolling thru your other feeds).
    When a new notification is received AutoCocktail will scroll down to your briefings feed.
    Briefings feed will stay until the AutoCocktail timeout expires, then restores the clock & weather feed.

    Continuous Feed Scroll
    This feature is only available in the donate version
    This is an experimental setting. Expect some bugs. AutoCocktail will launch the edge clock/weather every time the screen goes off, then scroll automatically thru all your enabled feeds at an interval determined by the AutoCocktail timeout that you set in the app. When the edge screen timeout (android settings) expires, the edge cocktail will turn off for a second, then come back on to the clock feed and continue scrolling.
    *a known bug in this setting is that sometimes the swipe will launch the feed's app and turn on the screen.*

    Recommended Settings:
    Note - Samsung default behavior is to turn on the display when a new SMS/MMS is received. That defeats the purpose of this app. I recommend following these instructions to change that behaviour.

    * Reorder your feeds so that a single swipe towards the center of the screen (any orientation) loads your briefing feed!
    Edge Settings > Information Stream > Manage Feeds > Reorder

    * Make the Edge Screen Timeout 10 minutes if you're using Clock Always On

    * The cocktailbar uses the display brightness settings. I recommend autobrightness.

    Supported Devices
    I have an s6 edge+ so that's what I test on and officially support.

    However this app should work for:
    S6 Edge+ confirmed
    S6 Edge confirmed
    Note Edge confirmed
    S7 Edge confirmed

    And it confirmed working for many other devices with ported Note Edge/S6 Edge/S7 Edge mods/ROMs.

    If your device is not listed above, please post a confirmation that it works or doesn't!

    This is now also working for any flat screen device that is running a n4e/s6e/s6e+/s7e ROM... Even though users of those devices can't do the swipe gesture to launch feeds, this app enables them.
