Microsoft Launcher Beta (Arrow) Last 10 Updates

    Hi, Beta testers:

    we are now trouble shooting the battery consumption issue in 5.0.1 build, reported by Beta and part of production users. to help us positioning the root cause, we have a new build for those who are now experiencing battery issue; and here is the download link ( if link cannot be clicked, copy the url and paste & go in your browser ):

    https://arrowlauncher.blob.core.windows.net/apk/launcher-Beta-5.0.1.47081 -prod-publicRelease-signed-aligned.apk

    please read below notes before you try it out and send us the log:
    - if you are experiencing the battery high issue, please help us by downloading and installing this build, you might need to enable "Download from non trust location" option when it is asked;
    - this build removed Timeline feature and you cannot enable it in the settings page as well;
    - try this build first and see if your battery issue got mitigated, if not, proceed with next steps. if you no longer see battery issue after installing this build, also please let us know by posting in this thread. make sure to use this build more than 3 hours though. .
    - we added a profiling tool; it is in Settings page => Utilities => CPU profiling tool, when you launch it, it will start collect log, you can do what ever you mostly will do and it will stop after 1 min. please only use this tool to send us log when your phone has battery issue, and you can add more details in the email you are sending to us.
    - also good to try followings if you still see battery issue and let us know if any of these works:
    sign out your Microsoft Account and sign in again;
    disable News Tab in Feed page as well;
    make sure "memory leak detection toggle" is off in settings -> utilities entry;
    disable Feed page;

    sincerely thanks for your help before hand. we want to provide solid quality of app before it goes to public, and we cannot achieve this without your help. also please feel free to send us detail through [email protected] with title "Google+ user battery issue: ....".
