Senior Launcher

Launcher reduced to the essential, intended for elderly people

What does this app do?

  • It registers as app launcher (that means it is called when the phone boots and the home button is pressed).
  • It lets the user decide if they want to call someone or want to watch images.
  • It reads the contact list and displays all contacts that have an image and a phone number (only the first number is used!).
  • Every contact is displayed as a large button with the contact's image on it.
  • On click either a call to the contact is initialized or the SMS app is opened to show images sent via MMS
  • In image-mode the gallery can be opened
  • Calling the ambulance is added on top of the list in the call-screen.
  • Language: English and German. (911 and 112 for calling the ambulance is translated of course)

Why is MMS used for images?

  • Because it is available everywhere and every phone has an app installed that can use it
  • Because it is the only way (that I found out) to direct the user right to the newest images

I recommend the use of QKSMS as a SMS/MMS app because it copies all images automatically to the gallery and because it's free.
