Microsoft Arrow launcher for Android Private Beta launched

Microsoft has announced that it is currently working on a new Android app, and it’s an Android launcher. The company’s latest app is Arrow Launcher and it is currently in private beta – meaning that you can’t download it without an invite just yet.

The Arrow launcher has three screens – People, Apps and Notes & Reminders. People screen shows recent and Frequent contacts, a dialer on the top and a menu to open contacts app. The Apps screen shows recent and frequent apps. The Notes & Reminders screen lets you add notes and add a reminder for them. All the screen have a row in the bottom for user-selected quick access apps.

Just like most other Android launchers, the Arrow Launcher also includes a dock where you can easily access your most used apps. The dock in Arrow Launcher includes an arrow and swiping up reveals another set of quickly accessible apps and links to access the launcher’s Settings, Feedback and Wallpaper pages. The dock also reveals the contacts you recently contacted.

The app is currently in private beta but you can ask for invitation by joining this Google+ community. And if you are not interested in joining the beta program, you can download the APK file for the app here.
