Thurrott.com: “I’ve recommended Microsoft’s Arrow Launcher for Android since the first version launched last October, but there’s always been one little gotcha. Well, not anymore: Now, Microsoft is allowing Arrow Launcher users to fully customize the Apps page on the home screen. And that changes everything.” (https://www.thurrott.com/mobile/android/77130/microsofts-arrow-launcher-android-updated-fully-customizable-home-screen)
Android Central: “Overall, Arrow Launcher is just as fast as Nova or Google Now Launcher. There's no unnecessary bloat, and it offers enough customizability that I'm not missing out on any features that I rely upon often.” (http://www.androidcentral.com/microsofts-arrow-launcher-astonishingly-good)
Forbes: “Arrow is an intelligent launcher, that customizes itself to help you keep in touch with people, find your popular apps, and speeding you into your work.” (http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2015/10/30/google-android-news-digets-galaxy-s6-iphone-6s-review/2/)
