Microsoft Launcher app review
One of things make it loved is a stunning feature. The arrow interface looks like a combination between neat and organized Windows Mobile and iOS design that uses more transparent effect and colorful Google design for its icons. The main page of Arrow consists of 4 parts: People, apps, recent, and Widgets. Different with any launcher application, you cannot add other pages in the main screen.
This app is a part that displays your favorite app list. Once you installed it, the app automatically analyzes your behavior in using Smartphone, especially the most-used application. From the analysis, Arrow will give app list and ask you to choose 5 most frequently used-application. This list of app will change by the time. More an application is used, the higher its position in the app page.
In addition to the ease in searching application, Arrow also offers convenience in searching content in your device, whether it is picture, voice, or contact in the second feature called as Recent. When you create content, for example recording voice or taking a picture or video, Arrow automatically will display the thumbnail of media in recent page. With recent feature, document searching will be faster because you can find them all in the first page. This is different with the Android default system that pushes you finding it first in the gallery or through file explorer. Based the overview, let’s conclude the pros and cons of this app.
- It offers more speed and neatness.
- It provides stunning features.
- The features ease Smartphone usage.
- Smart system is able to analyze its users’ behavior.
- There is limited personalization and customization.
