The new Good Lock 2018 app allows users to customise more on their Galaxy devices running on Android 8.0 Marshmallow.

The application can be downloaded from Galaxy Apps sections for the Galaxy devices running Android 8.0 Oreo.

Back in 2016, Samsung has introduced its Good Lock application for its devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The app introduced many customisable features for Samsung’s Galaxy devices line-up. The application has lost support later when the Android 7.0 Nougat has been released. However, Samsung has now released Good Lock 2018, which appears to be the upgraded version to the one released earlier, the application can be downloaded from Galaxy Apps sections for the Galaxy devices running Android 8.0 Oreo. The company states that the new upgraded version of the Good Lock apps suite will now allow its users to personalise the Galaxy device’s appearance and interface accordingly.

The first feature of the suite appears to be the Lockstar – it claims to change how the users see their locked phones, allowing them to style the lock screen with a wide range of designs. One can select a preferred background and a clock face, as well as which items appear visible on the screen, and these features can be arranged in a variety of configurations.

With the Quickstar feature users can customise the Quick Panel. With the Coloring tab, one can choose from a list of recommendations or create their own palette by adjusting the hues which mark On or Off for each setting, the colour and transparency of the background, and the Blur and Dim effects. The Simple Indicator tab also promises to give you increased control over the icons displayed in your Status Bar and the Notification Multi-Window tab allows you to toggle the Notification Multi-Window on and off.

The Task Changer app allows users to scroll through recent apps by swiping left and right, rather than up and down. There is a choice of Scroll effects and the opportunity to turn on Mini Mode, which shrinks the apps in the bottom of the screen to aid one-handed scrolling.

With the Routines feature, one can combine processes and functions to create new features. Give each routine a name before selecting the conditions that will prompt the routine and the actions that you want it to perform.

The ClockFace app allows the user to choose from numerous clock designs for Galaxy device’s always on display and lock screen. Choices include analog or digital clock faces and there is a choice of colours available for various effects.
