The Good Lock app is getting an update, giving you more options to personalize your Galaxy device.
If you’re someone who enjoys making every aspect of your device your own, the Good Lock application provides a wide range of customizable features that let you personalize the appearance and interface experience of your Galaxy device.
In order to put the power of customization straight into your hands, several exciting new features have come to the Good Lock app. Along with three brand new applications designed to help you make your S Pen, wallpaper and keyboard truly your own, two existing handy apps are also being updated with new features to provide you with maximum device ease of use.
Style Your S Pen
The first new app that has come to Good Lock is Pentastic1, an app that lets you customize the way your S Pen works for you. Pentastic allows you to personalize how your S Pen responds to you by providing different theme and sound options for features such as Air command2 and Hover pointer.

This ensures you have instant access to the functionalities that mean the most to you.

Customizing your device’s homescreen and lockscreen is one way of definitively making your smartphone your own, and with the Wonderland3 app, you can take this one step further by creating 3D moving wallpapers for your device.
Wonderland is an app that supports easy and quick 3D wallpaper creation. Once you’ve selected a wallpaper and an image to transform in the app, you can apply motion effects and particle effects and choose from a range of presets to create a moving wallpaper that is as unique as it is dynamic.

Furthermore, you can enjoy more control over the sharing UX by managing the apps that appear in your sharing window.
