    Very nice launcher. However I have to give it 3 out of 5 stars. I installed the launcher on an Android Box. 1.The launcher is not responding to my wireless hand held keyboard correct neither with the touch pad or directional pad. Example when I try to move or direct my D-Pad to move left or Right nothing happens. But if I use the touch pad to try and move up and down the screen move left or right. 2. I can not easily add and remove icons from the home screen at will. No Hold / Long Press options. 3. Rearrange icons on an Android Box easily. 4. Remove extra home screen windows or set another window as my home screen. 5. Adjust the size of the icons on the home screen. 6. The ability to edit and change out the icons with ease on the Bottom Dock of the Android Device using Microsoft Launcher. All-in-All I believe Microsoft is giving Google a run for their money. On their own platform. I can see in the near future Microsoft Windows phones/devices with this amazing Microsoft Launcher Powered by Android. Once you update please let me know?

    I really like the way it changes the feel and laptop if my phone. I haven't experienced any ads or anything yet either which was a real plus. It also added all the Microsoft apps I like to use automatically plus I have access to how many rewards points I have on my account with just one swipe! Definite plus! I can honestly say I have yet to find anything negative to say about the Microsoft Launcher. Time may tell a different tale, or maybe someone with a different phone will, mine's powerful..

    I really like this launcher, but I have two suggestions: 1. Allign the apps in the app drawer to center. They are now offset because of the alphabet the right. 2. Weather widget has very little information compared to Google weather or even the MSN weather windows app. Please add precipitation, sunset&sunrise, wind, historical weather etc.

    I changed my mind about the launcher it is EXCELLENT and I like the idea of the Bing Wallpapers and that it accepts my WIDGETS. AWESOME! It does not contain ads. THANKS A LOT FOR THE LAUNCHER. KEEP IT UP. But one thing is weird and it is that I Singed out from the Microsoft Account. Then I tried to sign in again but it says:Sign in failed. Please fix that issue and I will re-rate it to 5 stars. Finally fixed the issue by reseting the app and the backup is very good.

    Highly functional UX, clean UI, well designed. It might seem counter-intuitive to use a "MS Windows" type product as your Linux/Android "Window Manager", but it is far superior to the default Lenovo Launcher, I had to endure. The "Dark Mode" is superb and you can sense & feel the quality in many little details. No ads. Premium quality for free.

    Really nice launcher, its very modern and easy to use, there a nice job done there but one thing what should be added as soon as possible is to be able to modify the applications box (not the dock) so you can move the apps in a custom way instead of only having them ordered from A to Z, thats a option i would personally like and many other users too. Hope it can be added soon, anyway, nice launcher and its definitely the one i will use. Regards, Tomas.

    Great alternative launcher with more customization! I like the personal summary page with upcoming appointments, tasks, etc. I Iike the Bing photo backgrounds changing every day. I like the quick application tray with a few rows for most used apps. Possible improvements: Personal page could have an applet providing one click calls to family members and most frequent contacts. Search bar could have a customization option to be put only on the first (home) page.

    Did use Microsoft's Launcher for a bit over a year or so a go, but I didn't rate it and quickly deleted. Too buggy. Now? It's so much more stable, there's absolutely tonnes of customisation available now, my battery is better than ever; I just really wish I'd stuck around a little longer. Nearly replaced my phone there, and I was even considering an Apple iCrap for their battery, but not any more! Thanks MS!!!

    Great launcher. There are a few things that would make life easier though. 1) Allow search to search our One Drive files. I don't want to have to get the One Drive widget and click search on it. I want to use the launcher search to search my One Drive files. 2) On the 'At a glance' section, the 'People' section is horrible. The people I have listed there, I can barely see them. The images are so small! I have a big screen phone but still end up trying very hard to see the images.

    I loves this app because of the Cortana integration, but I just received a notice saying that they will be discontinuing the service at the end of April. Seems to be the case with Microsoft, always shutting off services that I enjoy. Don't even know why I still buy their products. I'll be uninstalling if Cortana stops working.

    I hesitated between 3 and 4 stars. The reason it got a 3 is because of small glitches in responsiveness. I am using Android Nougat 7.0. For example. Right now as I was writing this review...I chose to get out of Google play and change my wallpaper by long pressing the background....got no response. I had to open my notifications panel...swipe down from the top, to make it work again. It also misses some customisation for folders such as background color and transparency for icon and popup.

    I would have liked this launcher but it lacks some essential features of android Q (swipe navigation gestures support, focus mode). There maybe many more feature it might be lacking, like support for other apps in news feed (google news preferably), but these were the essential features that were missing, so I will give it 2 stars only.

    I used to have the Zenphone zenui launcher, then LG and tried for extensive time many other launchers. I was expecting something really simple and poor from Microsoft launcher, but I was impressed. They have nailed it with so many options and tools withing one solution and no lag and no ads. Currently using a OnePlus 7 Pro and before that a Lenovo Z6 Pro, only with Microsoft launcher. Really really pleased with this.

I mean that they are pushed backword and i can delete them by pressing the x button or change other setting. No matter what i do the screen doesn't return to normal. I have to restart the mobile for it to return to normal. Till this bug exist i cannot recommend this launcher to anyone.

    The app is very good and better than any other launcher apps. But it doesn't support the Android 10 System navigation... Please update it so that users can enjoy all the features of the OS while using this launcher. If possible, please bring the Windows 10 Mobile OS features like Fluent Design, App Tiles on home screen etc to this app so that we all Lumia fans can enjoy the features that we had while using Lumia phones.

    Multiple apps later, Microsoft launcher exceeded all my expectations I had come to expect from a replacement launcher (home) app for my LG android phone. This app enables the user the ability to create a simpler custom interface to replace the existing factory settings or create a well-deserved system interface with the complexity to possibly satisfy I hope anyone's inner geek needs. The best home app, I have downloaded, for improving functionality, battery efficiency and system performance.

To discover that all of of my current PCs for a Windows10 "downgrade?" that wiped the Bing Desktop app just like that, quietly and without my permission. And now the download links is also removed from Microsoft's web site.... Uninstalling this launcher, Outlook, Teams and everything that reminds me of Microsoft on my Android phones, tables and Chromebooks.... Disgusted be M$ again and again.

    Since Windows Phone isn't coming back, I had to switch to an Android phone. This launcher has made the transition a little easier. The latest feature set that ties my Windows PC to the Android phone is very useful. If only the launcher wouldn't flake out after a Android system update.

I had installed this launcher on my previous android ohine too, did not waste any time setting this up in my new phone too.

    Please add Android 10 Gesture Navigation Support. The only Support I need it. Please add biometric unlocking like fingerprint unlock for hidden apps. It will be user friendly, Secure and easy way to unlock instead of password. Because it takes sometime to think of password and type ot. Sometimes Password is typing so low it is taking time to enter. I am waiting for these features a lot. Hope u give in the next Update. Waiting for it. Everything is Superb and fantastic.

    I liked the look and feel of this launcher on my phone. There was however too many glitches that seemed to cause conflicts like displaying badge icons on apps and a few start up crashes. Not blaming this launcher as it could equally just be the phone software as well. Had to uninstall and now the phone works as it should.

    Impressive indeed. Efficient, sensible and has everything I need. One issue in Android 10. Screen lock (double tap gesture) asks for accessibility permissions every 2 or 3 days, though 'already granted' so that am forced to turn permission off then turn it back on, to make it work.

    I've been using this for almost a week now and while it has some excellent features, I can no longer keep this as my daily home launcher due to the various bugs and overall lack of smoothness/cohesiveness. Maybe one day this launcher will be ready for primetime, it's just not today unfortunately.

    Edit: Yet another update today! But expand dock gesture still doesn't expand full dock (apps & widgets) in dock "turned off" mode. Original: Excellent launcher but sad that full dock (with apps & widgets) doesn't show up on gestures in "Turned off" mode. Just one point short of 5 because of that!

    It took a while to set up, the help screens didn't address the issue I was having. Figured it out by flipping through settings on my phone for a while. But it's cool so far, hope it lives up to what it could be

    I have a Pixel 3a XL and I would like to map the squeeze gesture on my device. It appears that the Microsoft Launcher has compatibility issues with the Android settings and the launcher settings. Also, there are some minor annoying issues with the calendar sidebar. It doesn't seems easy or intuitive to setup.

    Very clean and easy. I tried multiple launcher apps but this one I believe is the best when in comes to functionality and how easy it is to set up, providing the stock Android experience and no ads

    Its slow on my Realme XT, the home screen doesn't come up till i wait for a couple second. This does not happen with any other launcher. Some apps like MS Kaizala show unread notification badge (as 1 unread message) even if its not there. This happens after i read all unread messages and come out of the app. It still shows 1 unread message badge.

    It's a good launcher, no ads is great. I do have one slight issue tho, I'm using gesture based navigation on my Huawei Honor Play and they are bit buggy when I'm using this launcher. Hopefully you guys can work on that.

    I won't eLUCIDate on my previous launcher, but it was having problems with updated or uninstalled applications. Enter the Microsoft Launcher. It's provided me with (almost) all of the configuration settings I had from my previous launcher, and more. Getting my icons into groups and setting everything "just so" takes time, but it was so worth it. It feels like it runs slightly faster as well. All for zero dollars. Thank you for a very well-polished application.

    I have a Microsoft account so I gave this a try. It works fine but there isn't anything here to make it stand out or useful compared to other launchers. Why use this when you can use Nova Launcher? The overview and timeline are interesting ideas but not enough apps and services use them to make it useful (also true on Windows). Not sure who this is made for. But if for some reason you need a 3rd party Launcher, it will get the job done just fine.
