Microsoft makes it Arrow launcher faster on load & reduces crash by 20%

If you've joined the Arrow beta program, Microsoft needs your help again to test some performance improvements they made to the launcher for Android. The app is another Microsoft Grage project. If you are not a beta user and want to participate, just join the official Arrow community on Google+ and join the party.

Here's the list of features Microsoft wants you to test:

  • Apps page loading: force stop Arrow and load up Arrow again to see if the Apps page is loading fast enough for you. We have improved the performance of this by 50%.
  • Scrolling in App Drawer, especially in the Widgets tab - we have greatly improved the scrolling performancce there.
  • Crash and memory usage. We have reduced crashes by 20% in this version and improved memory usage.
Grab the update in Google Play Store and send your feedback to Microsoft Garage via their Google+ community.
