HOW TO DOWNLOAD MODULES
For module downloads and updates please check out NiceLock Downloader Companion application for always up-to-date links. Or for manually downloading the modules you can also use

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

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.

You are welcome, hope it worked without problems?
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?

Same, but this is better as you have it in the app list or single app in the home screen (if you decide you want it). Activity manager creates shortcuts, but they all are on the home screen and can't be moved in the app drawer (so you will have an extra folder taking space for something you will not tweak/use 24/7). Sooo, this is far better overall and in the long run. Thanks for creating/coding it @xantrk !

This has nothing to do with the app posted here. This app is just a launch centre for all the good lock modules/different apps.


P.S. The app is great. My advice can only be to work a little bit on the design of the icon/in the app - round shapes would be great as it will follow the general samsung UI feel. Not a biggie and just if you wan't to put some time into it.

Already preparing a new version with material design and considering playstore. Should be done in a couple days :)

Hell yeah, give me a link, please. I couldn't find it with the name "nicelock". Did you name it differently?

    App or device (settings) issue ... ? Using MultiStar I noticed that the popup view action button has to be toggled to get this feature to work after every device reboot. It just doesn't stick ... .

    Hi everyone,

    I have been quite busy since the last month, after moving to another city, now I'm in another country for work. I tried to manage updating the DB and handle notifications as soon as possible to release. Hope you are happy with the situation.

    NiceLock has gone faaaar beyond what I expected. I just wanted to thank you all for the support. I'll continue to do my best to improve things, and implement your suggestions. Please let me know when you have any.

    BTW, Yesterday, there was an update on NiceShot, which essentially removes all of its features, saying they are included in the OS (they are talking about android 10). So please, do not update to that version and I will ignore that one on the DB.

    Hope all of you have a nice week, may the force be with you.
