Arrow launcher for Android is picking some serious heat for public release, but I guess it would take a little longer than is expected for public release. Microsoft team is constantly adding new features to the launchers. And, obviously, something new mostly leads to new problems. So, Microsoft would never want its launcher for Android unpolished (tough competition though!).
Earlier today, Microsoft pushed the beta 7 update. The update contains two new features and some enhancements.
If you’ve missed the previous updates, you should check out these (complete coverage/changelog):
- Arrow Launcher Beta 1
- Arrow Launcher Beta 2
- Arrow Launcher Beta 3
- Arrow Launcher Beta 4
- Arrow Launcher Beta 5
- Arrow Launcher Beta 6
Whoa! If you’ve gone through all of the above, then you’ll realize the level of improvement the launcher has undergone.
And, this time the launcher comes with a new “Recent” page where you can find some of your recently used apps, contacts and recent photos.
Here’s the screenshot:
And, the second feature includes a “Hide Page” feature, which lets you hide any page which you do not want (Recent, Apps, Notes&Reminders, Widgets). You can observe the option in the image below:
Other enhancements include removal of the blur wallpaper effect from Widgets screen and a more user-friendly first time tutorial. And, the update also addresses a better battery optimization.
