After spending some time in the beta stage, Microsoft's Arrow Launcher Android app became available for public download back in late October. In the meantime, this launcher has been downloaded by over 1,000,000 Android users, and it recently got updated, mainly to solve most issues reported so far.

According to the official change log, version 1.1.1 solves 80 percent of the bugs reported by users, also improving overall performance by an impressive 40 percent. The update also brings a new feature, namely the ability to double tap screen to lock. Obviously, this is only available for the devices that support this action. Arrow Launcher 1.1.1 also sports improved phablet support and updated Material UI for various elements.

Microsoft Arrow Launcher requires Android 4.0.3 or later, has 7.3 MB in size, and is completely free to download and use. Right now, the app has a rating of 4.3 out of 5 on the Google Play Store, after 45,605 user ratings.

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.
