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

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.

Nuki is a popular smart lock maker in Europe, producing high-quality door locks, fobs, and intercoms controlled with voice assistants and smartphone apps. The company used to support using old Android devices as a network hub for Nuki products, so purchasing a separate hub wasn't needed, but now that option is going away.

Galaxy Buds Pro review: You can finally have your AirPods Pro for Android

Galaxy Buds Pro review: You can finally have your AirPods Pro for Android

The Galaxy Buds Pro are the biggest update to Samsung's line of in-ear true wireless headphones since the original Galaxy Buds in 2019. The most notable upgrades? Audio comes via a brand-new dual dynamic driver system in each bud (the Buds Pro sound great), and a return to a sealing eartip design combined with multi-microphone ANC deliver seriously effective noise reduction. If you've been waiting for credible noise canceling true wireless earbuds with strong audio chops that aren't the AirPods Pro, Samsung delivers with its latest Buds.

At $200, the Buds Pro are at the premium end of the TWE market, though still well below the $300 or more of a growing number of ultra-premium options.

Good Lock module NavStar gets One UI 3 support and gesture navigation options (APK Download)

When we discovered that many of Good Lock's modules wouldn't be compatible with One UI 3 until this year, it was interesting to see that NavStar was the one of the most discussed modules in our comments section — many of our readers even said they wouldn't update their phones until the module was working. That time has come: last night, Samsung kicked off the year's first Good Lock updates, and our beloved NavStar has gotten more than a simple icon change. There are some exciting new features to be found here, too.

Weezer's latest music video has some of the most glaring Pixel 5 product placement you'll ever see

Weezer recently published the music video for "All My Favorite Songs" from its upcoming "OK Human" album, and you don't need to be in marketing to notice the frequent and quite prominent Pixel 5 product placement in the video. In fact, the Pixel 5 is on screen nearly one-quarter of the time in the video. For most of us, the almost four-minute Pixel ad set to music will constitute the majority (if not all) of the Pixels we see in the wild this year.

Puzzle Quest 3 is coming to mobile and PC later this year, courtesy of 505 Games

Puzzle Quest 3 is coming to mobile and PC later this year, courtesy of 505 Games

505 Games recently purchased the developer Infinity Plus Two, a studio that owned the rights to the Puzzle Quest match-3 series. This series started out in 2007 and is fondly remembered thanks to the fact it popularized RPG mechanics in match-3 games, adding depth to the genre, all while offering a fair price point. Of course, things have changed over the last 14 years, and now the match-3 genre is pretty much synonymous with awful monetization, especially on mobile. Well, 505 Games has just announced that it will bring Puzzle Quest 3 to mobile and PC later this year. Sadly we already know the developer plans to launch the title as a free-to-play release, so I wouldn't get my hopes up for this long-awaited follow-up since its stated direction is worrying.
