Arrow, a Microsoft Garage project, is the simple, personal launcher for Android that offers a radical simplification of the Android experience.
Arrow makes it easy to find, launch and get back to your favorite apps, keep in touch with friends, and stay on top of the important things in your life. Arrow learns from you – the more you use it, the better it gets. It does the heavy lifting so you can spend less time managing preferences, and more time enjoying your phone.
Your relationship with your phone doesn’t have to be complicated.
