Samsung updates Good Lock, brings more customization control

Good Lock is one of those new projects by Samsung that you either love or hate, and its vanilla Android look and feel has some Samsung faithful uninstalling it. Others can’t get enough of Good Lock, but, either way, Samsung’s new project seems to produce polarizing thoughts about where Samsung is headed with it. Polarizing companies are loved when they’re hated and hated when they’re loved, and that seems to be the mark of good software and apps as well.

Samsung has updated Good Lock before, with the company bringing bug fixes to fix some earlier issues — even going so far as to add a card style recents menu (which was one of the sticky points of the app before the update). Now, just one month later, the Korean giant is back with a new Good Lock update that’s sure to give users even more customization over how they choose to rock Samsung’s new lock screen.

The latest update brings Good Lock to version 24.0.8 and lets you “delete all” in the card-style recents menu, enable or disable the app tray in recent apps, greater status icon visibility, adding Mobile Data in Quick Settings, and so on. Samsung has also fixed a number of problems pertaining to repeat low battery notifications, lock screen issues when in calls, Bluetooth battery performance, lock screen effect performance, and more. You can find the new update changelog below. Those who were wishing for a disable option so as to continue flirting with the new lock screen will be disappointed, however.

If you’re a huge fan of Good Lock and want to take the new update, click the APK download link below and get your taste of Samsung’s latest. Want to know what to expect before giving the new lock screen a spin? You can always read our Good Lock app review.

This new update keeps restarting my phone and removes Good Lock?? I don’t get it? I have try different APK’s of version 24.0.8 but it removes itself kinda like this APK is more of a demo then the actual update. I have a Note 4 I went back to version 24.0.7 this version is buggy.

Same here…when tried to disable the new recent apps option, the device restarts and the good lock app uninstalls itself…very annoying..Please fix this issue as the new recent apps is not so good as we want to see the preview rather than just the app icon.And also, as this app is developed by Samsung itself, why not the icons such as multi window and side key panel be added in the next update which is very useful on Galaxy devices due to big display..And also after the MM update the grayscale mode was removed from power saving option which can… Read more »

They still haven’t fix the S View cover issue with the GS6, so I was forced to switch back to TouchWiz. (If not I just made my sixty buck purchase completely worthless)

I have a problem on GS7 with official LED view cover. After installation of this app notifications on cover stopped work. Any idea how to pass this issue to app developers?

Crashes when you “disable new recent apps” and uninstalls itself… hoping for a new update very soon… also volume rocker gets bugged doesnt “beep” when you volume up or down… gets fixed by itself after like a random time of beeing pressed…
