New Good Lock modules coming with One UI 3.0 for always on display, gestures and screen capture

Published

Samsung’s Good Lock is the most used app by Galaxy users to customize their phones with their own creativity. The Good Lock brings a bunch of impressive modules and apps to make your phone’s interface of your choice.

According to the latest information, Samsung acknowledged several suggestions and demands from the users and created a proposal to add some (expected 3) new Good Lock modules that are used as Third-Party apps from the Galaxy users.

On the basis of the proposal to expand the Good Lock functions with Android 11 based One UI 3.0, the Tab Star, Gesture Star, and LED Dot Star is the tentative names of the upcoming modules/apps for the Samsung Good Lock app.

Tab Star

It is a basic feature of Android 11 and provides a screen capture function with Tab.

Advantages

  • Quick accessibility and user customization

Disadvantages

  • Battery drain and malfunction

(In case of malfunction, the action is activated by impact when placed on the floor.)

Gesture Star

Depending on the smartphone, which is longer and has more gestures, gestures can be added to use software gestures rather than hardware buttons. Probably, it would be most useful if the function was added to the tablet, so it would be okay to provide it with Galaxy tablets.

Example Two-finger gesture/three-finger gesture

  • Activate the volume bar when swiping right with a two-finger gesture
  • Screen capture when swiping down with three fingers

LED Dot Star

It is a function of using LED in the AOD state. You can check the notification through AOD, but there are times when it is difficult to check the notification due to automatic brightness or fixed notification.

“We are already looking forward to what other features will be added to the Good lock 2021 that will be made for Android 11.” Said Samsung

Currently, Good Lock provides several modules including LockStar, QuickStar, Task Changer, Clockface, Multistar, NavStar, Home Up, and NotiStar. Aside from the modules, it brings a set of apps to level up the functions of your Galaxy smartphone. Pentastic, Wonderland, Theme Park, Nice Catch, One Hand Opetation+, EdgeLighting+, EdgeTouch, and SoundAssistant are the Good Lock apps that can be used to improve the user experience of your device.

On Android 13-based One UI 5.0, multiple apps and modules of Good Lock have stopped working because of compatibility issues with this new One UI version. Since the customization of the UI is based on the operating system, the company needs to re-optimize Good Lock to bring One UI 5.0 support.
