Good Lock is one of the best customization apps for Samsung Galaxy devices. It provides you with some exceptional customization tools for almost every part of the Samsung firmware – be it lockscreen with the LockStar plugin, QuickStar for quick settings panel, Task Change for recent app panel, Routines – similar to Tasker app, and more.
