    Apparently it's only available in America. Boo. I'm in Australia xd
    You can install it yourself, but like I said above you can't reboot or you'll have to install and set it up all over again.

    So it's pretty much a second Samsung launcher?
    More than a launcher. It replaces the default SystemUI app, and includes major changes (in most cases improvements) to the lock screen and the handling of notifications.

    I tried good lock and liked it on my first s7edge. But I had data connection issues with the phone and thought it might be good lock. So when i got another new s7edge, and still had data connection issues, i new it couldnt be the app. Id like to give it another try, but im skeptical. My 2nd S7 edge is finally working perfectly.

    Good lock is working fine for me. The earlier releases were very buggy, but I've had no issues with the current version.

    Just got a notification to update to 24.0.9 (even though I can't). The apk's are around already though.

    A lot more customization options. Props to Samsung for actually listening to their customers feedback. You can finally have a dark theme and mix the colors around. And sound options on both notification shades.

    I'm using good lock. I love it. Simple and clean. Close to stock Android.

    It's not a second launcher. It's integrated within Touchwiz. It changes the lock screen, notification toggles and recent apps and makes it look like a nexus phone.

    One big bug I've seen in this one. Either have to have the text in notifications an awful colour or you can have white that you can't see. Was much better before as a default black text.

    Mine is not like that, you just turn on the Notification color in the Advanced settings if you want it to match your notification shade colors or off if you just want it to look just like before, the same white background since Marshmallow.

    The one I mentioned above is not a Good Lock bug, it's a Pocketcasts bug.

    No Mobile tower indication in my Goodlock. Another one important shortcut is missing auto snyc option.

    I just installed the latest version. Could be my imagination, but the fingerprint unlock option seems to register much faster now.

    There used to be a way to collapse persistent notifications so they didn't take up real estate on the lock screen. Anyone know how to do this?

    It's not your imagination, since it was released I tested this and it was faster by a lot, the reason of the speed difference is when you have some Micro SD cards, can't tell you why but it seems that certain type of brand of cards affects the process when unlocking with fingerprint, I tested this by removing the SD card after just getting the little lag unlocking and it works great, then you insert the card and it goes back to the same. With GoodLoc this was solved somehow so that was always an advantage of this app over the original SystemUI.

    For the notifications, just go to the app's settings and in Advanced be sure to turn on Notification Keep, this will allow to move those persistent notifications to the Keep tab and in there you can create folders for them.

    I've heard that it isn't compatible with the Note 4, but you can still download it from APK mirror, which I have done. Will this prevent me from getting any future updates to this app, as I do have a Note 4.

    I really liked it, but didn't like the new app switcher that shows all the apps in a list. Does anyone know if you can turn that part of it off?

    Go into Good Lock settings and under 'Advanced' you'll find an option to toggle back to the card-style recents panel.

    So could I use Good Lock and still use Action Launcher? Or is Good Lock a launcher by itself?

    24.0.10 is out now. From what I see it gives more options for quick settings, a feedback option, and a backup/restore option.
