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.

Downloaded this for my father. The set-up is intuitive and it's easy to figure out how to edit which you have selected for favorite apps or contacts. My one suggestion would be adding a way to search contacts by name to add them since many people have dozens (or hundreds!) to scroll through. Really grateful this app doesn't collect data! It's just a straightforward solution to a problem that helps lots of people!

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.

Fantastic app to help my elderly parent still use her phone, really scales back to the bare essentials in the best way possible. One thing I wish was possible was to be able to remove the apps screen from the main area and instead just have the contacts on constant display, it's the one thing my mum trips up on but otherwise great work!
