    Microsoft Launcher Beta (Arrow) Report

    The device used in the app:

    One plus one 64gb (android 6.0.1)

    =====

    Pros:

    • I'm keen on flexibility of launcher settings
    • A lot of customization whereas my previous launcher
    • Well designed

    Cons:

    • In settings of wallpapers I couldn't find "black/white screen wallpaper" in pictures list, strongly recommend you to add this feature
    • It was hard to find how to set up the main screen when I tap on home button of the device (press and hold gesture should be added to settings menu with explanation)
    • Pressing and holding on "wifi" button from down bar quick menu doesn't redirect me deeper into wifi settings for searching new wifi hot spots
    • There is no integration with Google services
    • More colors could be added to settings customization (fonts, articles)
    • There should be added customization for app icons (make them all circled or quartered in one visual style)
    • I'm not sure to correct work on Microsoft widget "clean ram memory"
    • New apps don't add home screen even if there is empty place

    Bugs:

    • My old widget can't be loaded, see my screenshot
