This Android app that came out of Microsoft's Garage division receives its second update this month, finally offering support for tablets, as well as various minor fixes and enhancements.

Not long after the arrival of its predecessor that delivered a new utility page, Microsoft's popular Android launcher app moves on by receiving a new update. Microsoft Arrow Launcher 3.1 comes with a few new features as well, but probably its most important change is the introduction of support for Android tablets, something that its users have been asking since its introduction.

When compared to its predecessor, Microsoft Arrow Launcher 3.1 packs the following changes:

  • more backup/restore options
  • show/hide headers
  • new Bing wallpapers
  • horizontal layout for "all apps"
  • carousel scrolling
  • utility page options
  • tablet support

This launcher requires at least Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and has been rated by over 120,000 users so far on Google Play. Its current rating is 4.4 out of 5, with over 100,000 voters giving it 4 and 5 stars. The last update is dated March 14 and brings the app to version

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.
