Samsung's Good Lock 2018 app is already getting a huge update

A little under a month ago, Samsung launched a renewed version of its classic device customization app Good Lock. We took a much closer look, and we liked what we saw - Good Lock is easily the most powerful and capable tool for tweaking and tuning your Samsung smartphone this side of a custom ROM. And it seems Samsung is taking development of the app pretty seriously, because today it released a massive update that fixes and improves upon the application in dozens of ways. The changelog in the long scrolling screenshot below (courtesy of Sammobile) is absolutely gigantic.

Even weirder, for a brief period some of the apps themselves seemed to have disappeared from Android TV devices.

19 best new Android games released this week including Old School RuneScape, Dead Island: Survivors, and DERE EVIL EXE

Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. This week I'm changing things up a little. I have removed the Play Store descriptions that used to appear underneath my body of text explaining each game. This should provide a cleaner look with less clutter, not to mention less formatting on my end. This will also shorten the length of the page by a large margin, which should make things easier for all of you to scroll through. It's admittedly a small change, but please feel free to let me know what you think in the comments at the bottom of the article.

They're finally coming to Skype — but only in its Insider Preview beta build. Now when someone reads a message in either one-on-one or group conversations, their avatar will appear underneath it.

Retro MMORPG 'Old School Runescape' begins members-only beta

Jagex originally announced that Old School Runescape would be coming to mobile last July, and as you can imagine MMORPG fans from around the world rejoiced. Since then people have been getting antsy thanks to the many high-profile classic MMOs that have also been announced for mobile that have yet to see a proper release. Well, it would appear that Jagex is one of the few devs that is going to deliver. Old School RuneScape is finally listed on the Play Store, though it's only available as a members-only beta. An $11 monthly subscription to the game is required.
