Good Lock update brings bug fixes, additional changes

Have you taken Samsung’s new Good Lock app for a spin? If not, we suggest you do. Some have wondered if this new UI outlook (that mimics vanilla Android to some extent) is here to stay, but Samsung is now answering that question by updating Good Lock. The latest Good Lock update brings some bug fixes that will improve the constant location prompt that would pop up on screen (especially when taking the device out of standby mode), for example. The home bug in the recents menu, along with SD card problems, have also been eliminated.

Samsung has added some features with this Good Lock update, such as 1) charging recognition, 2) a mute status bar indicator, 3) swipe gestures to delete in the recents menu, and 4) brightness bar in the Quick Panel. There are tons of other changes as well, all done with the goal of making Good Lock your preferred lock screen and UI layout.

Samsung introduced Good Lock last week, with the Korean giant providing a preview into the future of TouchWiz. While Good Lock’s light pastel notification shade colors are too pastel and too light on the eyes, Samsung’s new Keep Notifications, recents menu, and additional information via its new quick toggles (such as cellular data usage within the cellular data quick toggle) are to be commended. We’ve been playing around with Good Lock and our own review will go live tomorrow.

Until then, we bid you “Good Lock” (good luck).

HAD both the 1st and this updated version. They have made a step in the right direction..especially with the lock screen camera shortcut. Can use it without unlocking now. Just wish i didnt have to go into “battery” to activate power saving or ultra power saving. They should have an option to swap notification toggles. other than that..its good. Im in Europe..got mine from apkmirror.

The lockscreen notification shade needs some toggle options, the device can be switched to airplane mode despite the phone having finger print/lock codes active. Anyone that has access to Samsung’s Beta group? Report this please. 😛

Samsung has a Mobile Security email, it’s “[email protected]” I had reported a issue were anyone could see a list of all installed apps without unlocking the phone, and they responded to the issue within days.

I cannot agree when it comes about the recent menu. It’s just awful how Good Lock handles it.

I just installed it and saw that the blur effect is gone and also the animations of the recent view. Anyone else?

new version work better IMHO. On my S7Edge Duos profiles works (location and time) – so I can change colors, time design, volume and network modes, but when I’ve trying make routine based widgets or apps (on lower drawer) – UI stops and phone reboots. Also didn’t know about dual sim phone – network indicators shows same network type on both sims
Thanks for uploading apk
