Samsung pushes big update to its ‘Good Lock’ app for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge


Samsung has pushed a pretty substantial update to its ‘Good Lock’ app in the Samsung Apps store today. ‘Good Lock’ helps users customize the UI on their devices and gives users more control over what their devices look like.

Samsung has received a bit of flak in regards to its built-in UI, TouchWiz, over the years. Users complain that the UI is visually unappealing and difficult to customize. ‘Good Lock’ changes that as it allows users to not only change the Lock Screen, but also change the notification shade/quick settings and the Recents tab on their devices.
