It appears that the Samsung Good Lock app is turning into some type of crowd-built customization app. Samsung has been taking the feedback from its users and turning them into features or fixes for Good Lock.
Just in case you haven’t been around or aware of what this is, Good Lock is an app that was released alongside the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (but also available for yesteryear’s phones as long as they are on Marshmallow) which completely overhauls the UI and turns TouchWiz into something that is aesthetically pleasing. The app has been met with open arms, even after some battery draining issues that plagued devices when it was released.
The latest update brings even more changes that were suggested by the community, and the change-log even states “Feedbacks from customer are applied”. This is pretty great that Samsung is taking criticism and suggestions from various users and integrating these changes into the Good Lock app, providing a genuinely unique experience.
As for what’s new in Good Lock, we’ve got you covered:
