Der Launcher setzt sich aus fünf Fenstern zusammen, welche nach Bedarf auch deaktiviert werden können! Diese Seiten setzen sich wie folgt zusammen: Widgets, meist genutzten Apps, alle kürzlich verwendeten Programme/Kontakte/Fotos und dergleichen, Kontakte und Notizen/Erinnerungen! P.S.

A surprisingly good launcher from Microsoft that aims for hands-off setup with an emphasis on productivity. The app creates separate screens for frequently used apps, recent activities, recent contacts, a handy note-taking screen and also a screen for widgets. Most screens are automatically curated based on usage patterns, although there's still decent scope for customisation as well. I find this one really useful on my work phone, where I just want my most used stuff within easy reach at all times.

• Thurrott.com: “I’ve recommended Microsoft’s Arrow Launcher for Android since the first version launched last October, but there’s always been one little gotcha. Well, not anymore: Now, Microsoft is allowing Arrow Launcher users to fully customize the Apps page on the home screen. And that changes everything.” (https://www.thurrott.com/mobile/android/77130/microsofts-arrow-launcher-android-updated-fully-customizable-home-screen)
