Announcement from xantrk: NiceLock update 2.7.01 and Downloader Companion 2.0 with OneUI look available!
For module downloads and updates please check out APKMirror or Sammobile . There is also a "NiceLock Downloader Companion" app available on this forum. You can also email [email protected] for details.

Due to Google Play Store policies, NiceLock can not download anything outside Play Store and I had to move any links in this thread

NICELOCK
Good Lock 2019 Launcher

What is NiceLock?

  • This app is only an alternative to main Good Lock app for the regions that it is officially unavailable.
  • This app only acts as a launcher for modules. Goodlock modules has to be installed separately. You can check apkmirror or sammobile for module downloads.
  • As badlock app missing some modules, I decided to create this project as a quick alternative.
  • This app will be updated as Samsung adds new modules.

Not a single issue. Thank you again. You've saved me a ton of headaches. Maybe work on it more and make it a bigger project that we can purchase or donate through. I don't mind either. I get free credit from Google rewards all the time and I can buy you a beer.

Just to clarify, when you say 'launcher', just a way to group them together? I've side installed the apps and used Activity Manager for the shortcuts, and placed them all in a common folder. Is this any different?

BTW, downloaded also other updates from apkmirror (ie. camera, and device care), but they won't install, anyone know why/how?

No difference at all. Basically it is an app with all the good lock shortcuts. About the other apps like camera, samsung restricts them. You may not be able to sideload s10 apk to even an s10 unless samsung wants it.

Glad you liked it. Thank you for your kind words. I am not an advanced developer so I dont have a play store account to post it, and honestly do not know how to monetize the app. Just wanted to publish this as early as possible. Maybe if this continues, why not

Thanks.

How come I'm able to install the Good Lock apps w/ no problem, but not these other apps? Aren't the GL apps restricted?
