Samsung is doing absolutely wonderful things with its Good Lock UI. Whether you actually like the advanced lock screen replacement or not, you have to admire how Samsung is handling this off-beat project. Responsiveness to user feedback, regular monthly updates, plenty of user-facing control: this is the stuff Android dreams are made of. Now, right on schedule, yet another new Good Lock update has arrived.
Good Lock 24.0.10 is available now through Galaxy Apps (or via an APK if you like outside the U.S.). The latest update is relatively light on user-facing changes but heavy on bug fixes (see the previous update changes here). Perhaps the best user-facing feature is the ability to enter Silent Mode using the volume rocker. This release allows you to drag your Routine accent colors into the particular order you want too.
You can now drag notifications from the notifications shade straight into a floating window too, and Samsung has also added a sync and Ultra Power Saving Mode toggle to the Quick Settings. There’s a new backup option in the Good Lock settings and a dedicated user feedback section, further emphasizing the value placed on giving users what they want.
On the bug fix front, there’s a lot to cover, so a changelog is perhaps best for that.
