I can use iPhone-like ‘Back-Tap action’ on my Samsung phone, thanks RegiStar



Samsung RegiStar January 2023 update

Apple iOS lacks customization but some of its features are excellent. The Apple ‘Back Tap’ feature is the easiest way to put an iPhone function you use all the time at your fingertips. Luckily, you can now use the iPhone-like ‘Back-Tap action’ feature on your Samsung smartphone, all thanks to the new RegiStar plugin.

Earlier the last month, Samsung officially launched a new Good Lock module named RegiStar for its One UI 5.0 users. This new plugin unlocks a lot of possibilities for home screen customization, search options and history, a Power button, and much more.

In the meantime, the Samsung RegiStar module also brings a Back-Tap action feature for Galaxy customers. It allows you a little easier access to more precise settings on your phone.

Similar to Apple iPhones, Samsung offers you both Double Tap and Triple Tap action, You can choose what action your phone will take when you tap the back of your phone twice or thrice. Here are some Back Tap actions you can perform on your Samsung phone –

  • Take and share a screenshot
  • Access your Google Voice Assistant
  • Start pop-up window
  • Show notifications
  • Show recent apps
  • Back button
  • Open an app – You can choose any of your most used applications by tapping the ‘Settings’ icons.

To use this feature, you just need to download the RegiStar module on your Good Lock application. Once you open the plugin, you will see different functions, you have to tap on “Back-Tap action”.

Now tap on the “Double Tap” option and choose any of the functions or apps. Do the same with the “Triple Tap” option. You will also see an option that reads “Event detection notification”, it shows a toast popup when a Back-Tap event is detected. If you want, you can enable it.

There could be many professions but writing about tech is something that I've chosen and it's what I've been doing. Besides this, I like sketching, roaming, and shopping. I am a casual person and like to taste different dishes and Chinese is my favourite.

Samsung plans to enhance Virtual Touchpad function in H2 2024



Samsung Virtual touchpad

Samsung is planning to improve its virtual touchpad functionality, following valuable user feedback from its community. The company may release a major update for the One Hand Operation + Good Lock module to implement improvements.

A user on the Samsung community suggested including a “lock (fix) button” on the virtual touchpad to stabilize the cursor. This button would address concerns of thumb fatigue and precision aiming during single-handed operation.

This suggestion of a lock button is mainly useful for those who sometimes find the current controls challenging due to the cursor movement when adjusting the pointer speed.

In response, a community moderator has acknowledged the feedback and commitment to reviewing and improving the virtual touchpad by the second half of 2024.

Samsung will fix ‘Close All’ task button issue in Home Up with upcoming updates



Samsung Home Up Close all button issue

Samsung Home Up Good Lock module is set to receive a new update that will address user concerns regarding the ‘close all’ button placement in different task changer views. Users have reported that the button is too high in the vertical list and slim types, which affects usability.

The issue seems to start from the One UI 6 release, with users noticing the change after updating. Those who prefer the vertical list layout find the button positioned too high, switching to the mini-grid layout for better accessibility.

In response to user feedback, the community moderator has confirmed that the Close All button placement issue of Home UP is recognized and will be resolved in an upcoming software update. This update will normalize the location of the ‘Close All’ button across all layouts for consistency and ease of use.

However, the timeline for this fix remains uncertain. The moderator has expressed that it is difficult to commit to a specific timeline for the release of this update. Users are advised to stay tuned for the update, which will enhance the user experience by providing a regular interface once again.
