Microsoft Launcher update fixes issues, adds performance improvements, more
The beta version of Launcher app got updated last month with a handful of bug fixes and under-the-hood enhancements, but those using the stable iteration had to wait until now to get all those improvements.

Well, if you didn't know what the latest beta update brought for Microsoft Launcher users about two weeks ago, here is what you'll get now:

  • Fixed top crashes and App Not Responding Errors;
  • Support applying icon pack over single custom-set icons;
  • Adjustments to wallpaper settings experience;
  • Fixed several badge count issues;
  • Performance/memory/CPU improvements.
Microsoft's Launcher surpassed 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store, so the app seems to be pretty popular among Android users. The app's overall rating is very high as well with a score of 4.6 out of 5.0, which is quite an achievement considering that more than half a million people rated the Microsoft Launcher.

If you haven't tried it yet, perhaps it's time to give it a go and see how it suits your needs. The launcher should work on just about any device that's powered by Android 4.0.3 and higher.
