Good Lock modules Theme Park and Wonderland get new features in One UI 3 update

Theme Park has been a stand-out Good Lock module since it arrived last year, allowing users to create their own themes for One UI. However, the need to select colors by way of an existing wallpaper has always been a sticking point, as was the lack of finer control of what gets themed and what doesn't. As Samsung continues its 2021 revamp of Good Lock, those two issues are finally being rectified, and we're even getting some new features alongside them, too.

There are some exciting new features to be found here, too.

When a new version of One UI is released, it often breaks compatibility with certain Good Lock modules until they themselves can be updated. Last year Samsung refreshed (almost) all of the Good Lock modules at once in what it called the "2020" update, and the company was set to do the same thing next month. Today, several weeks ahead of schedule, Samsung has started to distribute Good Lock 2021, bringing all-new features and restoring some old ones.

Major One UI updates often break Good Lock modules, and it can take a while for Samsung's dev team to get things working again.
