Microsoft Arrow Launcher is one of the most interesting pitchers out of the conventional. Your design focuses more on productivity, a collection of thematic windows instead of the “all-in-one” to which we are accustomed. One for widgets, one for applications, one for work, one for documents…
This separation is one of its main attractions, but when you innovate it is inevitable that more than one less behavior more akin to the one of other launchers. Microsoft has listened to its users in the connection, and the latest update allows you to join in a window applications and widgets and sort them as you want.
Until now, the favorite applications had its own exclusive window. Although you could then add the applications that you want to, is ordering the icons automatically so you could not leave spaces between them. It was not possible to include not widgets, which had its own reserved window.
It is now possible to mix them, when you go to the settings of Arrow Launcher and actives Customize apps page (it is not enabled by default). In doing so the windows are merged and now can move the icons and widgets to your own liking.
You are still being limited, that if, to a single window for favorite applications. Perhaps something just for some, although it is precise recall that the dock you can slide up to access more favorite applications.
Double-tap to lock
Another new feature is an old acquaintance of launchers: the double tap to lock the phone. Is not enabled by default because the required permissions, so you must go to Arrow Launcher settings, activate the Double tap to lock and ensure the administrator access to the Launcher.
The Administrator permission It is necessary so the pitcher can block mobile, so that does not panic. The only thing you have to remember is that at the time of uninstall Arrow Launcher it is possible that you should disable the administrator access before.
Annotations on images
As I mentioned at the beginning, Arrow Launcher focused on productivity, and another proof of this is the new function of annotations in images available now directly into the Launcher. In the window of recent, where the latest pictures that you’ve taken on your phone are, touch long in one of them you can edit it.
Options is not that they are extensive and are reduced to drawing with a Blue or red line. The idea is not to create a work of art, but circles, arrows or small notations. Let us recall once more: productivity.
Support for Live Wallpapers
The Live Wallpapers are Molano, isn’t it? No? Well, gives equal, the case is that even before this latest update Microsoft Arrow Launcher ignored them, limited to wallpapers of static images of life. Now the to dress up the bottom of the Launcher are own photos, images of Bing, selected images or the Live Wallpapers you have installed.
Arrow Launcher was already a very interesting pitcher before this update, and now it is a little more. It is perhaps not for everyone, but it is undeniable that it is an option to take into account.
