The ability to completely customize the entire experience is one of the key strengths of the Android platform. And while I tend to prefer "stock" user interfaces over third-party replacements, Microsoft's decades of platforms experience makes its Android launcher---called, yes, Microsoft Launcher---particularly interesting. Especially to those, like me, who spend their days in front of a Windows PC.
I've been writing about Microsoft Launcher since it was first released as Arrow Launcher back in October 2015. And I've watched as this incredible solution has evolved from a Microsoft Garage project---with the inherent uncertainty of such projects---into a fully-supported Microsoft produce that is now central to the software giant's cross-platform integration plans.
