Samsung’s Good Lock app update brings even more Community changes

Last updated:

Samsung has released an update to it’s Good Lock app, bringing more changes suggested by the community.

Samsung’s Good Lock not only lets you customize the on-screen look of your Galaxy smartphone but also alter the way you use your lockscreen and notifications.

Good Lock completely overhauls the smartphones lock screen, while also making sweeping changes to the status bar, notification shade and recent apps menu. It does all this by packaging itself as an update to Samsung’s System UI, a core part of Android.

Since its first launch, Samsung has already made several improvements including making the app available to even more Galaxy devices,  adding options for NFC, Power Saving Mode, Smart View and Privacy Mode to the Quick Settings menu, support for more Routine colors and providing list- or card-type Recents.

In the Good Lock changelog, Samsung says that “feedbacks from customer are applied,” highlighting that Good Lock is devoted to customer feedback.

Main Features:

  • Launch apps in an instant from the lockscreen with the App Tray feature and get up-to-date with app information quicker than ever. Just pull the App Tray handle up from the bottom of the screen to reveal an area where you can keep shortcuts to frequently accessed apps. Use the Edit and Add buttons to select or remove apps.
  • With the Lockscreen Widget, you can see the information of your choice quickly without unlocking the screen. When you drag down the widget area (below the clock on the screen), you can see a list of widgets and set, edit or add to the list.
  • In addition, you can organize Notifications from the lockscreen: save, categorize and get reminders. If you see a notification you need, simply long press it to sort it into a category. Save notifications using Keep, allowing you to check app alerts later, or touch the alarm button to set yourself a reminder.
  • Routine lets you customize your lockscreen layout, your App Tray, Lockscreen Widget, background colors and clock so your Galaxy device looks just the way you want, when you want. This allows you to fill your App Tray with productivity-enabling apps during work hours, but switch to a Routine with entertainment-orientated apps in the evening—and pick color schemes that match your moods.
  • Recents lets you scan through a list of recently used apps, and enjoy faster transition between your applications using the app icon.
  • Effects lets you adjust your wallpaper, add or adjust popping colors and highlight parts of the screen you want to make stand out.
  • Quick Settings also lets you make fast changes to your smartphone setting on the notification panel. If that is not enough, you can also tap on links that will take you to more advanced settings menus.
