Samsung Android phones are known for their features and customization of the stock android platform. It’s One-UI Concept and other features have been loved by Galaxy users across the world.

Samsung Galaxy Lab had introduced Good Lock to make the Android experience more appealing and interactive.

Good Lock 

Good Lock is a collection of various tools for customizing and optimizing the Android experience on Samsung devices.

Good Lock is a multi-utility suite of apps developed by Samsung. It is available on Galaxy Store for Samsung Galaxy devices.

Originally launched in 2016, Good Lock now contains 15+ apps that provide a lot of ways to tweak UI of system components as per user's liking and some fun theming options too. 

 

Some of the applications under Good Lock may not be available for all devices. Like Pentastic will be available only for Samsung devices having support for Spen. Similarly edge touch is only for devices which have curved edges on screen.


Best way to identify which of the apps are available for a particular device is to download Good Lock from Samsung galaxy store. As it shows only functions and apps list as supported on user's device. Every feature supported with Android 10 and One UI 2.0.
