    The new design is awful. I used this launcher for a long time, because the search function works for apps, contacts and is an internet search at the same time. With the new design you can't speed the launcher animations up like in the previous versions, and the new search still works the same, but shows less information in the same space. I'm really disappointed that I can't get the old search back and that the launcher feels really slow now, I guess I have to look for another one.

    app I agree with other reviewers, v6 is very unattractive with heavy bold fonts, that look like they are from ten years ago. The wallpaper widget is now a pain to change if you don't like the wallpaper of the day, and it keeps changing every few seconds. I'm really disappointed with the update, I'd take the previous version any day. Like another reviewer said, I'd pay for the old version, but not the new one. Why did you mess with such a great app? Why make random changes like so many of these?

    apk Really good. At first, I didn't like it because the folders looked like rounded squares, but then I changed them in the settings back to circles, and changed some other things that I didn't like about it in the settings, and now it is awesome! Definitely worth it. Also, if you don't want to you don't need to connect a microsoft account. Way better than the original android launcher! 😃 Really glad I found this launcher! Worth the download! 🙂

    review App Searching using the search box provided inside the main menu is taking more time than the previous version. This is happening because of the integration of web search along with the app Search function. So the simultaneous working of both these searches creates the lag. If you are arranging the search function in such a way that its web search will start only after getting app Search results, then the problem will be solved.

    settings Old version was good, can we get it back. Much preferred the folders and just the overall look of it. I don't know why you changed it and said it was an improvement. Based on other recent reviews, it was clearly a mistake. Just roll back to the old version for us. (Edit: they reverted the ways the folders are interacted with, which was the main thing. Thanks)

    for pc Great app. My only problem is with the news feed. There are just few selected countries as news market and so one is forced to choose out of these countries, and when you select "system" as news market you only get news update from mostly America. I would love to have my home country Ghana in there, so that I'll get news updates I can relate with. I believe many others would love to see their country in news market.

    app drawer I've been using this launcher for many years now and I loved it since but the latest update seems to be the worst one yet. While I think the UI/design is slightly worse, my main gripe is with the lost functionality. The swipe-up on app icon feature is now gone. I used to be able to swipe up on icons to open different apps and save home screen space. Hopefully this gets changed in future updates.

    pro apk Great launcher! I've been using Nova for years. And this pulled me away with the plethora of options and sheer speed of it. I have one major gripe though. Whenever I swipe up back to the home screen, the launcher has to reload itself. It really takes away from the fluidity of the experience. Not sure why the most commonly used gesture has to basically force restart the launcher.

    download I'm a fan of the windows type layout and apps that I can get with app. I've used a Windows OS, an Android/Google OS and on the fruit/Apple OS over the past years and the CEO of Microsoft is Natallea gets it - collaboration is the way of the future and it clearly shows in the Microsoft Launcher App. I get to have whats productive for the job I do, the iOS can't deliver that in my environment - and it never will. I'd move to the new MS Duo device but I can get the same with a $200 handheld.

    themes " Can't imagine going back from MS Launcher" The latest update has actually been a retrograde. I felt like going back and was on the verge of uninstalling, when I decided in favour of continuing and over rid some of the warning by the launcher. Nothing bad happened as warned by the launcher and I was happy to continue with the launcher. My problem is that I am a Windows/Microsoft fan, and, am more or less ready to live with what they offer.

    So the app has been updated and now supports both landscape and portrait formats - which I raised as an issue in a previous review. The latest update now supports a practical number of apps in a folder - still seems to be weirdly limited to only display 6 x 4, but soooo much better than it was. It's would still be nice if the notifications were displayed from the app icon like the quick actions for the app, but it's much more usable now than it was.

    Better than it was before. I would love the new Android 10 gestures to work more smoothly. It's lagging quite a bit more than one ui launcher. Also I would like there to be an option to access my dock without the entire home screen becoming blurred (I would like the dock to just pop up from the bottom without the fullscreen effect).

    Excellent launcherl, but occasionally I have to do a factory reset and reinstall all my apps, because my tablet keeps turning it's self off, without me initiating that action. I suspect that it's because of a missed function on some app installations. I hope it 's not because of this app, but it is one of the suspicious ones!

    Thank you for reading and replying to my review.There an bug that i think it happens when i update an app, that just adds apps to the front page that I didn't even add. And another is that the letters in the apps changed(become a bit bold and a different type of letter) without me wanting to change and actually there's not even a setting to change the letters format, colour or type of letter and id be very happy if the M.S launcher had.

    Update - Liking the speed now. One big issue is the font color of folder name on home screen. When I use wallpaper from another app, it becomes black and is not legible at all. However, when I use bing wallpaper, it's white. If possible, allow us to choose custom colors. Also, please bring back the brightness slider and other setting options when swiping from the bottom.

    I never leave reviews but I had to on this. I don't like the new design, it's all clumsy and a lot of features were removed. For example where are the shortcuts from the dock? I hate the bold font. This new update is so wrong... Thinking about going back to Google launcher. Update: There is a "bug" that keeps changing the search engine to Bring, how convenient

    The app is grate except from its hide apps feature. The way its organized the apps is kinda messy. There's no space panning with each apps or the apps are very close to each other. I will give 5 stars when they fix it Edit: It fixed my concern after an update, but I will be happy if they make it 4 or 5 columns instead of 3 from the Hide Apps selection

    I really liked the app before the new updates to its interface, mainly because of the large number of apps I can access from the feed page , but that has been reduced now.. and the app menu looks very cluttered and disorganized. Customisation options are very limited. The previous interface for Glance was very comfortable to the eye and did not look as primitive as the current one. Apps added to folders are still visible in the app menu.

    I love this app's ability to limit the impact of applications by leaving them off the home screen. The launcher relies heavily on cookies but coupled with Edge as a default browser, and being very aware of which email accounts I have syncing with a 1TB hard drive subscription, I have no third party app requirements on any of those gmail accounts. 2sv is a breeze, and I have a lot of accounts I use for the different apps for which they are the default login. Bonus: security is layered "in use".

    I do really like this launcher at least till last version. In this version they made it worse with the overall look : the appearance of the dock, folders,.. almost everything is now really bad and slow.They unbalanced everything I hope they fix it and get it back to the greatness of the older version. I would give this version one star but with the respect that I gave to the older one, I give it two just for now(I did give it 5 stars before the upgrade). Please bring us back the older version🙏

    Part of my last review: "Anyway, thanks for the quick response with the Search suggestions fix in v5.8" Yeah, v6 has the same search suggestions problem again! Going backwards on the finish the old version had is stupid. Anyway here it is again: I want to open YouTube, I type 'Y' in search and there's the icon, I tap it (or I think so) but it's a contact entry. Yes, mis-touches! The search suggestion area needs to be a fixed height, 6-7 lines so that other icons are reachable one handed.

    This is a very nice launcher, and my favorite features are the ability to organize apps into folders and use a slideshow as my wallpaper. I am disappointed that, with the latest update, I no longer can organize my apps (inside folders) alphabetically. Unless I'm overlooking that option, I don't see it anywhere. Can you please return this feature in the next update?

    It really is excellent. If you have an android go phone, nothing is as good as this app for customizing your device. Install this and open your developer options too to cut down animation times and change icon shapes, and you will have the feel of a premium handset. I love the news feed too, brilliant for android go which lacks this option. Great app, 5 stars!

    At this point, devs are just doing whatever they want. First the whole redesign that was completely unnecessary and the launcher got significantly worse with that update. And now with the latest update they lowered the in-folder icon spacing and it's unbearable. I used to love this launcher, but things have changed. I will be switching as soon as I find a good alternative, had enough :). Devs if you are reading this, bring back the old design or give us a choice to do so :)

    My experience with the app was goooood until the last update. It crashes too often without any specific reason. It gets stuck in one place and then, you have no other way to get out except to restart your phone. Oh and another short note.. i really wish there's freedom in rearranging of apps in the App Drawer without following an alphabetical rule. For me it's easier to remember where i placed an app if I personally put it there and not where the launcher wants to put it.

    I really love this app and whenever I change my phone, first thing I do is, to install this, but now I have started getting one issue on my Oneplus 7 Pro, which is really unavoidable and annoying, whenever I swipe down on home screen to open notifications, always asking to turn on accessibility, which is already in place but everytime asking to do so and down gesture has stopped working. I am using these gestures from last 3-4 years,but suddenly this issue is disturbing me badly. Please resolve.

    It got messed up. 1. Selection of wallpapers from Bing to my own library are all white. I have to guess what image I'm selecting. And when I finally did, orientation changes to landscape and crop a portion of it and fit it to portrait mode. It's terrible. 2. When the device reboots, the glance screen is reset to its initial state. I have to rearrange all the widgets again.

    This will make your android experience amazing. I tried many launchers from next launcher, to go launcher, to whatever launchers... But switching to MS launcher stopped the migrating. They have functions that others don't esp the onscreen timer really helps keep away from my phone unnecessarily. Using the MS launcher & the Minima Icon pack made my life very amazing. No need to micromanage the phone appearance EVER again

    Very Smooth Simple UI from an unlikely developer. Overall this 'launcher' works very well, smooth and generally I've had an overall good impression. The only thing preventing it from 5 stars as it does struggle sometimes with overlays and apps. These are rare instances but they do occur enough to notice and cause UI freezes or glitches with the native pixel launcher fighting Microsoft Launcher. Overall, this is a very good lightweight alternative to the native launcher.

    The app worked perfectly fine until version 6 arrived. Sluggish animation & UI compared to previous version 5. The real annoyance was theme transparent option has been removed which causing persistant Navbar problem in LG phone (Q&A did suggest tweaking app scaling in system settings. Unfortunately the app itself didn't even show up in the scaling list).

    Great to have microsoft launcher on my new phone. Easy to adjust the settings, size and layout to my own taste. Clear and clean easy to read. Much prefer this to what my phone came installed with. Its one of those things where you either love or hate Microsoft. Personally I prefer it. Many Thanks 😊

    So far this is my favorite Launcher and I've tried a lot of them. Really cool mix of fun and business productivity. Feels like everything is a tap away and organized. I didn't give it 5 start because you are MISSING AN ESSENTIAL BASIC FEATURE. SEARCH capabilities when selecting icons from a different icon pack and search on the badge notification list. They are not even in alphabetical order. PLEASE ADD THE FEATURE.

    I liked Microsoft Launcher before. It synced Windows desktop with Android well, and was beautiful to look at... The new version places a black bar at the bottom where the navigation buttons are found... It really interferes with the aesthetic of the home screen, especially when using non-black wallpapers.

    Best launcher to boost your productivity. Like "THE BEST" As someone who has tried hundreds of launchers, I think this launcher still needs to work on the following features. 1. App drawer background customization. (Opacity & blur) 2. Show/hide alphabets on the app drawer 3. More rows on dock. And adjust gap between dock elements (vertically)

    Microsoft launcher was the best launcher. I loved it! A lot! But now the recent updates ruined the experience for me. The launcher was simple, classy and it had a booster on home and you could change the wallpaper with just on Click without WiFi or data. Now, everything is complicated.

    Not bad but some widgets are getting resized automatically and this is annoying... Also the rewards widget does not display the right take any longer... EDIT: reported issues still existing. Also the search widget now just open the bing page instead to the result page. So annoying. Why can't Microsoft stop breaking things? EDIT2: despite the answer from the devs, I still experience the same issues. Nothing has been fixed...

    I downloaded this app and then took it out because I did not like the search look through Bing. Then I realized I can keep the Google Widget and also missed the Bing Wallpaper which I have on my PC & Tablet also because everyday I either visit a place in the world I never knew existed or key facts that broaden my knowledge. Most of all I missed how this app organized my phone and my Apps. I will never delete this life enriching App.

A few bugs e.g. double-finger swipe not sensitive, difficulty in re-arranging desktop icons etc seem to have been fixed with the latest update. Don't like the broad font for the clock and weather widget though. Can i change my font in general on Galaxy J4 Core? Will continue using it for now.

    Edit 9/29: The restarts are the result of the phone freezing up requiring reboot. Another device is fine with the launcher and no MS Company Portal App.*** Edit 9/27: Per your request, I reinstalled. I switched back to device launcher after having to restart 3 times in 1.5 hours. ****** I never had issues with Arrow or versions up to V5. But V6, nothing but problems. There are no badges on FUAs page. And the freezing, which the test tells me is not result of launcher.

    Very very nice launcher😍 but, there is a bug in the wallpaper setting - It has a scroll effect when I turn off the 'Use scroll effect on home screen' option when setting its wallpaper, if its launcher setting was the same as the Android setting, it would look better. there are some bugs in the folder. Sometimes in this launcher the icons inside the folder and the folder's own icon get smaller and after a while it gets fixed and I want font settings in this launcher. Please fix these issues soon

    New update is horrendous. My home screen is completely messed up, and adding onto that - my app arrangement inside the folder looks extremely cramped now, introducing more mistakes in opening the apps I want. New font weight is also unappealing to say the least. It looks clunky and out of place. Typography 101 is definitely absent in this update.

    Unable to change the daily wallpaper, that change wallpaper ring is so useless as the wallpepar does't change as needed, why on microsoft do u always change things that work well to bad things saying it is an improvement. In the end we say to u that we liked the older version. Bring back the removed features: dock network, brightness, wifi; autochange wallpaper and other suggestions from other reviewers.

    Extremely good with lots of options including alphabetical arrangement of app icons either in avertical or horizontal grid; providing downloadable themes & wallpapers ,updates in world/sports news, caledar synchronization and updates on local weather. Keep it up. Working very well on my Techno handset variants and Nokia 6. In addition its browser has to be Microsoft Edge /Bing. To run the launcher and browser the user needs to have a Microsoft account which can easily be created and activated.

    WORST UPDATE EVER!! I had been using this launcher as default one for the past 2 years. But in this new version 6.0 update, they have pulled back many useful features. I couldn't get those shortcut icons in dock which were so helpful as i used to increase or reduce brightness of my Phone, switch between network connectivity options right from there. They've just trimmed the dock. Don't know why. Now i just want to degrade my launcher again to any version below. Giving only 2 stars to version6.0

With the recently updated style, this launcher is now amazingly customizable (gestures on apps, on screen, widgets, hidden apps, daily new background, style and size of icons and more), elegant yet simple to use. Glad to see support for A10 gestures is now available on some devices too, though I personally use FNG for the added functionality. Perfect launcher for me now. 🙂

    I love this launcher. I reset my phone and decided to give the stock launcher a few months, but had to come back to Microsoft Launcher. Everything makes more sense. The pretty backgrounds are a bonus. 😜

    I'm satisfied with the launcher so far. The only thing I think i can complain about is that when you open the app tray and select an app, thetray does not close automatically.

    The launcher keeps on creating files icon on the home screen. in an hour it creates about 5-6 shortcuts/icons. I am on oxygen os 11 beta 2. It does not let me use the feedback function as well, hence posted here.

    Extraordinary features! I used to use POCO Launcher and always think that it's the best.. But this is Wowsome! No bug till now and the screen gestures are just awesome.. Everything is awesome in this app. A must to download

    The recent update had brought back the feature that I liked the most. Made it as efficient as it was before. I'd been using the launcher for years and on different phones, still one of the most best launcher I've used. Thanks for the recent update

    Great update. But an issue should have been taken into account.. When making a folder of large icon apps, it took me forever to swipe. It'll be nice if the folder at home screen is begger instead.

    Launcher is well organized. I love the extra app shelf you can swipe up. The wallpaper updates are the most important thing (and being able press a button or do a gesture to change it). The left side screen is nicely spaced any clean. News is nice, but I don't use it a lot. I'm not noticing any issues with performance. I first switched to this app when the accent color showed up on the search widget and else where, but now I see that doesn't work anymore. Aside from that, it's great.

    It is a very good app. But can be improved. Like there should be own color picker choice for accent colours. It should have an inbuilt security system for apps and privacy.

    I must agree with other reviews, why change something that wasn't broken. Just for the sake of change! Never had a problem before, now with the new update phone is, well, just sluggish! I've been using this launcher for what must be 5 years! Will have to look somewhere else for now 😕 22.09.20 - Further to Microsoft's response. Thank you for a response! Appreciated and good to know developers read these. I have updated the app, and yes the sluggishness has abated. Thank you.

    I really like this launcher, especially after introducing the much needed landscape view. It's highly customizable and it feels really smooth. I however don't use it as my main launcher due to the fact that it sometimes takes more than 5 seconds to start after closing an app. This waiting time really stops my flow of working. I will try it again after a very much needed update.

    Originally gave 5 stars, but the latest update, (downgrade) is terrible. All the features I liked have been removed. I didn't buy a big$$$ phone with 250 GB storage so I could install "Lite" apps with minimal features and very few customizable settings. The new update is a simplified dumbed down version. After this new update I uninstalled the app and downloaded the older version from elsewhere.
