Very disappointed to discover after purchase that this app has a serious flaw that renders it useless. If you bump the volume rocker during ring of an incoming call, the ring volume is muted and the answer options popup disappears immediately. You can not answer the call! Select the dialer and it appears that the call has been disconnected, but from the callers end, the phone appears to keep ringing. It is routine to bump a phones volume buttons while extracting from a pocket or purse, so you'll consistently be hanging up on incoming calls. The idiot OS program managers at Google do not see it useful to allow users to deselect the volume quick-mute option which is the root cause of the problem, but because this app drops the answer popup as soon as the volume is bumped, you loose any chance to answer the call.
Not just for the elderly I suffer from autism and I find this launcher very appealing and easy to use. From the colour themes to the size of the icons (I'm currently using 2x3) and the way you can use separate screens as folders. I can see this being my permanent launcher.
Configures nicely But cannot find setting to clear missed calls from wake up screen.
Black Friday Deal Sonny Been waiting for this deal for my mother thanks.
Excellent solution for people Excellent solution for people that lose their way on an Android Phone. This worked well for my Elderly Mother. I did need to tweak some things and add an Auto-Answer App. Two Suggestions: Incoming Calls: 1.) The launcher should handle incoming calls. The Android Slide to answer is not very Arthritis Friendly. I would imagine a very large Answer Call Button. Return to Home from Dialer: 2.) When in the Big Dialer App Keypad, it should return to Big Launcher Home after a certain time of inactivity.
Not cheap for an app, but extremely well done. The free Kennedy theme gives a very polished look. It took a *long* time to get the menu structure the way I wanted it, but other than being able to move "buttons" around instead of having to redefine them, I can't think of any way this could've been easier. Anyhow, now that it's set up, it's a joy to use.
