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.
