About this app

Elder Launcher is a launcher designed for seniors focused on simplicity and legibility.

Elder Launcher supports pinning favorite apps and contacts to the homescreen for quick access.

You can easily phone call your favorite contacts from the homescreen.

The edit menu is useful for managing the home screen. It can be opened by clicking the pencil icon on the top right.
• You can add/remove favourite apps or contacts.
• You can also rearrange selected favourites.
• Lastly, in case a newly installed app isn't immediately visible then use the Reload option.

Elder Launcher's clear layout with big icons and text, makes using phones very easy for everyone.

If your phone has Android 10, then you can turn on Dark Mode in your settings app to make Elder Launcher dark with a black background.

This is an open source app. You can view the source code here: https://github.com/itsarjunsinh/elder_launcher

This is a decent launcher for visually impaired. There are a couple improvements needed. If you use dark mode, often when going home, a white screen appears before seeing the home screen. No launcher should have a loading screen, but this does. I wish pressing home when on home screen would bring you to top of favorites. Instead, one must scroll to top to get to most used/important apps.

I will investigate why the white screen is appearing and will look into incorporating your other suggestions. Thank you for your continued feedback. I appreciate it.

The one thing we attempt to make easier for the aged is use. The app is great for limiting clutter on the desktop of the phone. The problem I see is that once the app is active there is no notification of WhatsApp messages that are received. You need to go into the app before you can tell that there is a message waiting for you. How will they know they have a message waiting?

Best home screen app for people who have never used feature or smartphone - especially very elderly and those with learning disability. One suggestion - if you could add a setting/option by which the contact gets called immediately on touching ( without the popup showing number and call button) it will be even more friendlier for very elderly people with no knowledge of multi-level user interfaces.
