Published

on


Every year Samsung introduces a new generation of its skin. With all new updates, the company introduces several new enhancements for the Galaxy devices; for instance, last year, the Korean giant introduced the One UI 5 skin upgrade, which brings new features and improvements to the UI and existing functions of Galaxy devices.

Apart from these, Samsung has introduced some new stock apps for its Galaxy devices which aim to bring more utility to the devices. However, these apps are limited to some high-end device which comes with premium hardware specs; let’s explore them all.

Good Lock’s May 2023 update comes with bug fixes (2.2.04.60)

Good Lock

Good Lock is not a new application; it was introduced in 2016; this application is a kind of mini Galaxy store which provides different types of modules in one place that customize different UI functions like Quik panel, notification, navigation button and many more. Initially, the Good Lock was available in limited countries, but in the past few months, Samsung has expanded it to many new countries. Introducing further development, Samsung has recently brought a new version. To download it on your device, click on this link.

RegiStar

RegiStar is a new addition to Good Lock modules. This module offers customization of the functioning of the side button, touch and hold the screen and also sets activation of feature by back tap. In the Galaxy Z Fold 4 offers extra functionality to press the screen strongly. You can also take advantage of this module; here is the download link.

Dropship

Samsung Dropship is the latest file-sharing tool. This is also one of the modules which is present in Good Lock. The main quality of this file-sharing app is its ability to share the file to different platforms, including Android, iOS and the Web, which makes it a more reliable sharing app as compared to other available apps. Unfortunately, the app is currently limited to Korea. Here is the download link:

Galaxy to share (GTS)

Galaxy to share is a useful function, allowing you to share the setting of one Galaxy device with another as it is. The function can easily share the settings of several apps, including KeysCfe, Clock Face, Sound Assistant, HomeUp, Multistar and many more. You can also manage and share the settings you have created. Download the app through this link. As of now, this function is also limited to Samsung’s home country.

Camera Assistant

Good Lock’s module camera assistant offers several customizations for the main camera; the module is full of features that make the handling of the main camera easier. Initially, this app was introduced in Galaxy S22. Later, Samsung expanded it to more Galaxy devices; to download it, click here.

Samsung Single Take to get functional improvement with new update

Published

on

By


Samsung Single Take is a unique camera software feature that allows users to take different types of photos and video clips with a single tap. With this functionality, Galaxy device users get an edge over other Android users in terms of camera functionality. To make it better, the company frequently provides updates to it.

Samsung has rolled out a new update for Single Take with version number 4.0.00.34. However, when you visit the update page of the Single Take on the Galaxy store, there is no changelog provided by the company, which indicates that it will not provide any significant changes for the devices. Hopefully, we may get some general improvements for the devices.

If you are using a Galaxy device compatible with Single Take, you can now update the Single Take functionality by going to the Galaxy Store. After the update, you may get some bug fixes that may make the usage of the function more seamless and smooth.

For starters, the Single Take function is directly available on the Camera application, so you can easily take advantage of the feature. To get the best possible results, you should move the device slowly in the desired direction. This feature also depends on the camera stability of the device, so if you’re using a device with OIS, then it will be more beneficial.

Android Photo Picker Will Support Search Feature

Published

on

By


Android Photo Picker is a part of Google’s workspace, and now it is set up to offer you more convenient functionality, as it appears that it’s going to start supporting local and cloud searches by the end of this year. 

The Android Photo Picker is a browsable interface that permits you to choose which media items to share with an application, and now you no longer need to endlessly scroll through your Google Photos library just to find the one image that you are looking for, since soon it will support local and cloud search later this year, as announced by Google on the second day of the I/O 2024 event. 

However, most developers prefer not to use Android’s Photo Picker for several reasons, among which is that many developers abstain from it because it’s missing a lot of functionalities compared to the older system file Picker it’s replacing. One of the major missing features—cloud media support—was finally added not too long ago, and now users can finally choose media from their Google Photos libraries. Apart from this, there’s one more issue with the Photo Picker that cloud media integration only makes worse: the lack of search. 

IMG- Android Authority

The Android Photo Picker permits you to choose photos and videos for sharing with other applications. Two sections are housed in the app: the first is Photos, which showcases everything in reverse chronological order, and the second is Albums, which pairs up photos by category. It’s pretty convenient for tiny libraries, but for large ones, it can be difficult to find specific photos. 

Finally, Google is adding a search feature to the Photo Picker app to permit you to search both locally stored images and your cloud library, and it could be available widely on devices running at least Android 4.4 and up by the end of this year. However, some users are also guessing for advanced search capabilities; for instance, with the new “Ask Photos” feature, it’s probably that the Photo Picker search will be more basic.

Circle to Search is no longer exclusive to Samsung and Pixel devices

Published

on


We are in the tech era where nothing lasts limited, and Android’s exclusive Circle to Search feature is a hot topic in the tech market after being a couple of months older than how it cannot be available on iOS. The reportedly new Circle to Search feature could come to Chrome on iOS. 

Samsung is the one who brought Circle to Search into existence, initially introduced on its recently launched Galaxy S24series, but the backbone of the feature is Google since this feature uses Google’s algorithm to run. It later came to the Pixel smartphones and tablets. 

Circle to Search Expands Reach: Feature Spotted in Chrome for iOS

At the I/O 2024 event, Google promised to expand the Circle to Search feature’s reach to 200 million devices by the end of 2024. Probably, this could include the iPhone as well. 

This probability is being speculated by the reports from Mac Observer, who spotted something interesting hiding in Chrome for iOS. As per his analysis, a new “Lens Circle to Search” flag appears that was silently added to the app, and once the flag is enabled, the Circle to Search feature will be available within Google Lens on iOS. 

If this analysis comes true, then iPhone users could get the power to start circling and searching to their hearts’s content. However, it is quite obvious that there will be little difference in the way of functionality or appearance as compared to the system-wide integration Circle to Search has on Android. 

As a result, the feature appears to be limited to being used on Chrome for iOS. At the moment, it is not clear whether this feature would only be limited to the iPhone or if it could also make its way to the iPad. Google is also yet to officially confirm its plans to roll out the Cirlce to Search feature for iOS.
