Microsoft updated its Arrow Launcher for beta testers today, promising that it's the "biggest release yet." The app is a Microsoft Garage project for Android, and version 3.0 is the first major update to the app since 2.0 was released last June.
Here's what's new:
Ability to select VERTICAL or HORIZONTAL scrolling for apps page.
Brand-new utility page. Pin utility "cards" as individual pages, or customize to your heart's content.
Small changes to "Backup & Restore" feature.
In previous versions of the launcher, the only way to scroll through the app drawer was vertically, so the addition of horizontal scrolling will be welcomed by some. The ability to add utility cards could prove to be useful as well.
Of course, it seems like Microsoft may have been overstating a bit when it called version 3.0 the biggest release yet; however, it's not a rare occurrence. For example, version 2.2 was called a "MAJOR" update.
If you're on the beta program for the Arrow Launcher, you can download it from the Google Play Store here. If you're not but you really can't wait for version 3.0, you can also use that link to enroll in the beta program, which only takes a few minutes.
