Arrow Launcher updated with new customization options, widgets page makes a comeback
Microsoft's Arrow Launcher continues to gain popularity among Android users. The latest update the developer released recently adds new features and improvements, but also fixes some issues with the application.

Before going into details it's worth mentioning that Microsoft is usually testing all the changes it plans to bring to the stable version in the beta program.

If you want to be part of the Arrow Launcher beta community and test new features before they're released in the Google Play store, you can join it on Google+.

Back on the subject, the new Arrow Launcher v2.6 has been further optimized to be more memory efficient. According to Microsoft, the memory usage has been optimized as well, so users should expect a much smoother experience.

As the title says, the update brings a new icon size customization option, which was one of the most requested features in the last couple of weeks. Also, Arrow Launcher users will be pleased to know that shortcuts for apps are now fully supported on the application's page.

The developers also added a dedicated page just for widgets, so you'll be able to customize your home screens the way you want. Since there's no update without fixes, Arrow Launcher's latest update brings its own bug fixes for wallpaper and other items.

If you haven't tried Microsoft's Arrow Launcher yet, you can go ahead and download it now for free via Google Play store. It should work on all devices running Android 4.0.3 or newer.

I once installed on my Nexus 5, and I LOVED it... The experience is BUTTERY SMOOTH, and that was about 6 or so months ago... And in this time spawn, Microsoft has updated it not once BUT TWICE with even further performance & optimization improvements...!!! I almost can't believe such a highly polished app is ABSOLUTELY FREE OF COST...! Now, I'm going to try it out on my S6... Not that I've any complaints about Touchwiz, not at all... I just LOVE to 'tinker'... G'Day!

Nice improvements, this makes me want to finally try out the Arrow Launcher. My favorite launcher is Apex - it's just too good.
