Microsoft Arrow Launcher is now out of beta

Microsoft Arrow Launcher for Android out of beta, freely available on Google Play Store

This app became publicly available back in June as a beta and now its first public release can be freely downloaded via Google Play Store.

Microsoft is not new to Android when it comes to releasing apps for this platform, as they already pushed major products like Office to Google's mobile operating system. Apart from the big names, the Redmond giant has been also developing various small projects for Android and Arrow Launcher is one of those pieces of code.

Microsoft Arrow Launcher became publicly available back in June as beta and provides an optimized user experience that is different from what vanilla Android and most other third-party launchers have to offer. This launcher has no home screen, its UI consisting of just three sections - Apps, People, and Notes & Reminders. Its features also include a customizable dock, widgets, support for additional icon packs, and more.

With great launchers like EverythingMe going out of business, it looks like Arrow Launcher might have a bright future ahead. Since downloading and using it is still free, remains to see how many followers will it gain (and keep) in the long run.

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.
