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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
