APK Notes:

1) FEATURE: 3rd party icon pack support: Many of you told us to you want to theme your icons via a third party icon pack, and we have done exactly that. We love it and we hope you do too :)
2) FEATURE: Page management: You asked and we listened -- you can now set another page as the homepage, and rearrange all the pages, including the Widgets page. Simply tap and hold on an empty spot on any page to get started!
3) ENHANCEMENT: We have once again improved the first-run experience for our new users. This time, we have focused on making the workflow better to help you enjoy Arrow on Day 1.
4) ENHANCEMENT: We have added Material Response on the People page.
5) BUG FIX: We have a few key issues that would freeze or crash Arrow.
6) Performance: We have optimized the battery and memory consumption further. Arrow should now consume less battery and memory!

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 3.7.0.35013:

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.” (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.” (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.” (www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2015/10/30/google-android-news-digets-galaxy-s6-iphone-6s-review/2/)
TIME: "[Arrow] offers users a new look and feel for their Android device and puts an emphasis on giving users quicker access to their most-used apps and settings." (www.techtimes.com/articles/100743/20151028/microsoft-unveils-arrow-launcher-android-phones.htm)
