A new application named Good Lock was released by Samsung about three weeks ago on their Galaxy Apps store. As the name suggests, the application is designed to work as a lock-screen app that will bring added functionality to the lock-screen as well as the notification settings. Today, it was introduced officially to the public and in that process; Samsung has also declared the compatible smartphone models. The Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, S6 Active, Note 5, S7, and S7 Edge form the current list of Samsung smartphones that can run the Good Lock app.
The software primarily focuses on making the lock-screen and notifications more productive, as well as offering alternate ways to utilize them. One can now place widgets on the lock screen itself, allowing the user to access any desired information without having to unlock the device. Good Lock also permits faster access to various other applications or settings that are used most regularly on the device. If you want to check out Good Lock, download it now from Galaxy Apps and give it a try, provided of course, you are in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore or South Korea. We are hopeful that the application will make its way to most other countries as well, albeit a little while later.
Tech analyst, John Gruber, has a good reputation when it comes to leaking information about Apple devices. So when he says to expect the long-awaited Apple iWatch to finally see the light of day next month, there is a very good chance that it will actually happen. Apple is holding an event on September 9th that is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 6. It is possible that the iWatch will also be introduced at that time.
By July of last year, Apple had trademarked the iWatch name in a number of countries. The wearable is expected to come out of the box with a number of sensors that will allow it to capture health-related metrics such as heart rate, blood pressure and possibly blood glucose readings. That information can be sent to Apple's Health app, where it will be analyzed. The app will debut on iOS 8.
