Samsung Good Lock 2018 Gets First Major Update With New Functionalities and Bug Fixes
It’s been a little over a month since Samsung re-released their Good Lock customization tool for their Galaxy S range of devices. Dubbed as Good Lock 2018, the tool offers a degree of customization like no other. Initially released only for the South Korean market, Good Lock made its way to the Galaxy App Store, from where it can be downloaded. The app in itself merely serves as a platform from which other apps that actually do all the heavy lifting can be downloaded. Today, Samsung has released a major update for Good Lock 2018 and the associated apps/features which fixes some bugs and introduces new functionality.
The sheer number of changes in the update is colossal, so we’ll run you by all the important stuff only. In Task Changer, you can now enable background blur or make the recent apps screen centre on the currently running app. A blur effect option has been introduced for the notification panel in QuickStar as well, along with the ability to disable or enable the data saver or power saving mode icons in the status bar. LockStar, Routines, and the ClockFace features have also received new functions and changes to existing ones, details of which you can see in the screenshot below.
Currently, Good Lock 2018 is confirmed to work on the Galaxy S8, S8+, Note 8, S9 and S9+. There is a likelihood that it’ll work on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge too, but that remains to be tested. Similarly, we don’t know if it works on non Galaxy S devices that run Oreo. Do let us know in the comments below if it worked on your device. It might not be available across all markets yet, so you might have to use a third-party source such as APKmirror to get the applications. It looks like Samsung wants Good Lock 2018 to take off and such updates are a step in the right direction to make that happen.
