Still working with free version to be sure app has all features my mom needs before purchasing paid version. After extensive exploration of the free app, it doesn't seem like the app (free or paid) allows for checking voicemails. I can't locate a single button/option for accessing voicemails through the old-fashioned dialed voicemail or the more preferable/convenient 'visual voicemail' built into the Google Android Pixel system. Easy access to voicemail is pretty important but missing.

Hello, I'm sorry there no special voice mail feature in the App. In my country you just call to specific number for voice mail. No special app need. Thank you.

A few months ago, I installed this on a tablet that lacked a functional keypad. To my dismay, the free version didn't allow use of the keypad during calls (that's no good if I reach a menu & must press #s on that!) But I couldn't afford to unlock the additional features on my tight budget, so I emailed the developers a complaint about the high cost. I got a very considerate reply with a remedy to my problem. But since I got rid of that tablet, I didn't need to use their app anymore.

I installed this on both my 94 year-old father's phone and also on my own phone so I can follow along. The app solves the problem of clumsy fingers dragging things around by mistake. We also tried the phone and sms apps but since my father was already familiar with his native phone apps I reconfigured the BIG buttons to launch the old apps instead of the BIG apps. This works fine for both of us. The only downside of not using the BIG apps is that the SOS function can't automatically send a text.

Hello, the BIG Launcher SOS button can send text automatically with the BIG SMS only. It's because we can inform the BIG SMS to send it now. This we cannot do with other SMS apps. The SMS sending cannot be inside the BIG Launcher due to Store rules. Thank you

Set targetSDK=34 (Android 14) and fix what it needs:
* updated libs and build
* changed info text for SOS SMS
+ added translations: af, ca, in, iw, am, fil, gu-in, ka, kn, mai, mr, my, or, sd, sq, tl, uz, yo
* updated translations: bn, rn, pt-br
- removed translations: ug
* fixed no close previous preferences screen on language change
+ added phone call type to foreground service
+ added audio route button action type (option in preferences)
