        Hey Arrow Launcher users,

        You asked, we listened. As of v2.2.0 Arrow Launcher provides a fully customizable home page where you have 100% freedom to place the apps and widgets that you want on your “Apps” page.

        Thanks,
        James H.

      • Widget Support

        I'd like to be able to add/remove pages (I don't need the Reminders page) to house custom widgets.

          • Add Ability to Set a Blank / New Page

            Some users have requested the ability to keep at least one page completely blank. This would enable users to have an unobstructed view of their wallpaper and a completely clean page if they want it.

                • Allow Users to Add More Pages to Arrow

                  I would like to be able to add more pages. We can already hide the existing pages, but the ability to actually add more pages to the launcher would be very useful.

                  • Please Add A Calendar Page

                    It would work similar to the Reminders page - only with selected calendars.

                    Ideally, it would also allow the choice of calendar app for viewing/editing.

                    • Update a Material Design, By Following Google's material design guidelines

                      Being Materialistic, is what matters the most now. Android users just love "Material design" apps. I'm not saying that you should completely do a makeover. But, as much as possible, make it materialistic. By following the Material UI guidelines for Android Developers.

                      This thing would make it more user friendly, attractive, an android user would feel worthy to install this launcher. And the material concept has the hidden benefits in itself :)

                                      We’ve done a lot of work recently on performance. The animation for opening the app dock and swiping between pages should be displaying smoothly now.

                                      If it’s not, please let us know!

                                    • Move Frequently Used Apps to The Bottom of the Screen

                                      Moving the frequently used apps would make them more accessible when using the phone one handed, especially on larger screens.

                                        You asked, we delivered! In v1.3.2, you can reach your most used apps at the bottom of the screen. Simply go to Settings and turn on “Display apps in reverse order”. Enjoy!

                                      • Reduce the battery drain.

                                        Better life for the battery.

                                          Since last October, we have reduced battery drain by 50% to 95% depending on the make/model of your device. Give Arrow another try and let us know.
