Microsoft has just updated its launcher app for Android, bringing its version number to 3.0. Packing a new central hub that brings together many useful functions, Arrow Launcher 3.0 also provides increased efficiency when compared to the previous versions.

The highlights of Arrow Launcher 3.0 include the following:

  • a central hub that displays each productivity function as a compact Arrow card
  • an extensive wallpaper collection
  • support for horizontal and vertical page scrolling
  • apps can be renamed or hidden, and their logos changed or resized
  • new backup/restore feature
  • search activated by swiping down from any screen

According to Microsoft's James Hsu, "Arrow’s mission is to continue our relentless focus to be the best productivity-based launcher in the market." He also says that this new version is "leaner, faster and more battery-efficient than ever." Microsoft Arrow Launcher 3.0 can launch apps 10 percent faster, is 20 percent more memory efficient when loading animations and pages, but it also comes with 15 percent increased power efficiency.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
