Make any Android phone easy to use Featured

In this week's "Weekly quick tips" we have prepared a short list of custom Android launchers, that will make any Android smartphone easier to use for Tech-Shy seniors.



For some users smartphones are pretty hard to get used to, this applies even more to older users. As time goes by it's becoming harder to shop for simple feature phones. The demand is going down as smartphones practically rule the market.

As a result at some point senior citizens are put in a position, where they have to opt for a smartphone. Which is by no means a bad thing, but it's completely natural if they feel overwhelmed or even, to some extent, intimidated by them. This is true for iOS and Android devices, but for the latter, the customization options can appear to complicate things even more.


Luckily, Android users have the option to install launchers that change the way their device looks and feels. Here is a list of senior-friendly launcher apps that will turn the appearance of most android smartphones into a simplified phone with big understandable icons and no excess clutter.

Simple Senior Phone - Senior Phone features a simple and easy interface with big buttons for easy calling, texting, SOS, location functions and other functions (weather, magnifier, music, torch,..). A perfect phone and a simple launcher for your grandparent. Senior Phone makes your phone easier to use - be it for you, your parents, grandparents, seniors or anyone else.



Fontrillo - Fontrillo is a simple phone interface (launcher) conceived for whoever believes that a mobile phone should be easy to use. It allows anybody to enjoy an immediate, fresh and user-friendly experience. Fontrillo is the perfect choice for senior citizens and visually impaired people.


Big Launcher - BIG Launcher makes the smartphone suitable for seniors, children, and people with eye diseases, motor problems or the legally blind. Visually impaired and technically challenged users can use the simple and easy-to-read interface with ease. There is no fear of making a mistake and losing everything with stress-free navigation. And it also features the SOS button which can save lives! There is a Demo version that you can try. The full version will cost €8.51.


Wiser - Wiser is a friendly way for people who wish to enjoy a smartphone without the hassle of finding their way in the complex smartphone environment. Wiser could fit the use of Non tech savvy people, seniors and more.


Large Launcher - Unlike the complicated default interface, Large Launcher will make the default options simple and easy to use for seniors. There will be only two things they have to do, either slide up/down or tap the apps to open. Similar to other launchers for seniors, all the icons and fonts will be made larger, simplified notifications, SOS for sending current location and much more features are available.


Phonotto - Tired of all the bells and whistles that come complete in today’s phones? Hi-res cameras, speedy processors and cool apps just aren’t your thing? Whatever the case may be for you ( or perhaps your kids, parents or grandparents ), Phonotto is a wonderful breath of fresh air, it allows you to make/receive calls and send/receive SMS, manage your contacts, make photos and video, use your daily apps and so on...
