    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).
