This goes for all android smartphones and tablets. But when you have device like S7 or S7 Edge, we recommend 3 must have apps that you must install on your device to increase it’s performance and features.
These are the apps which are specifically designed for Samsung devices which i’m sure you’re gonna love’em. So let’s get started,
Must have apps for Samsung Galaxy S7
1.Good Lock (Samsung)
Don’t go on the name as it’s not an app that locks your device instead Good Lock enhances the lockscreen UI, Quick settings and notifications. This app comes from the house of Samsung and is specifically designed for Samsung devices. Best way to install this app on you S7 is to sideload the app using the APK file by enabling Unknown sources from settings (See screenshots). Once installed you must reboot your s7 device. When device reboots, the fist thing you will notice is a list of shortcuts at the bottom of the lock screen
The Good lock app deeply integrates with the system and matches colors of the Status bar. You can change the dropdown notification panel without downloading any themes from the theme store. The lock screen is highly customizable and you can choose to include specific widgets, notifications and app shortcuts according to your convenience.
One drawback of this app is that it is not completely compatible with 3rd party themes and you might have to uninstall it or you might face some UI crashes. This app is recommended for an advanced Android user as a few UI crashes won’t bother you.
2. easyHome for Samsung
easyHome for Samsung is an interesting app which every S7 user should install and get rid of pressing the home button all the time. Once you have installed and activated the easyHome app, you need not have to press your phone’s Home button anymore. All you have to do is touch it slightly like the back or the recent app keys and it will be all. Best part, no root is required.
You can also configure long press gesture to lock the phone or start any app or camera or jump to the last app used. This is something Samsung should have provided by default. Anyways, now you know how to do this.
3. App Lock: Fingerprint&Password
App Lock: Fingerprint&Password is a free must have and a most important security app, you must install on your Samsung Galaxy S7. The fingerprint app enables you to add a layer of security on your Galaxy S7 using which you can lock your private apps like WhatsApp and Gallery. A big thanks to Samsung’s open fingerprint API and the Android Marshmallow update which allows you to unlock apps using the fingerprint sensor on the home button.
The app also allows you to lock apps using a PIN or password as an alternative and backup, if by any chance you are not able to use your fingerprint to unlock the particular app.
