    You swipe down at the top of screen to see notifications.
    Is there anyway to change setting so you can swipe down anywhere on screen to see notifications?

    Only works on home screen, not if you're in an app.

    This only works if you have the latest version of TouchWiz. Since I'm on Verizon, I had to get it here:
    https://www.sammobile.com/apk/touchwiz-home/

    I don't expect Verizon will push it out for many months, the way they are with updates.

    It's been a feature in Nova Launcher since forever. One of the first things I notice that annoys me when I try to go stock or use someone else's phone

    I guess I can wait - no big hurry for that setting. (I use Verizon)

    It's not a Verizon update. Check the Galaxy app store, you just need an app update.

    I think what he meant was alot of us that happened to be on Verizon never got that update. We had to go find it and manually update it. Never popped up in our galaxy apps update section.

    I'm on Verizon and I do not have our user the app tray button, since I've had my Note 8 I just swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the app drawer.

    Thanks! Verizon user here. I just updated touchwiz to 6.1.58.5.............Truly enjoying that feature.

    Are there any other new features with this update that would make us Verizon people want to install this apk?

    (For just this one new feature that I don't personally need, I probably will wait to update.)

    Other than swipe down for notifications on any home screen, I don't notice anything different.

    I can swipe down on any home screen to see notifications without the update. (I just don't see an option in the settings to turn this off.) Perhaps, I just don't understand what this update will enable me to do that I can't already do. Can you explain it to me? Thanks.

    Launchers such as Nova have had this feature for years.

    However, I can tell you that with Nova it only works when you are on a home screen. If you are in an app, swiping down on any part of the screen except the very top usually results in a refresh. I assume this would be pretty consistent across the board with most launchers that have this feature.

    I downloaded this apk, but when I attempted to install it, I could not. I pressed the install button, but nothing happened like the button was frozen. I rebooted the phone with no luck when I tried again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    But can you swipe down anywhere on the home screen, not just from the top edge? That is what this latest version adds, swiping down anywhere on any home page, not just from the top edge. If you can already swipe down from anywhere on a home page and get the notification drop-down, then you already have the latest version of Touchwiz.

    I use the swipe down on the fingerprint scanner feature to view notifications. Works great for me but for those that complain about the fps location I guess that would be a problem to.
