If you have vision issues or just don’t like a complicated smartphone interface with lots of tiny icons, we’ve got an app you might just love called BIG Launcher. It’s also a great app for kids.
The app I’m going to talk about today isn’t free, but that also means it’s not clogged up with ads constantly asking you to upgrade. It’s not too expensive, just $10 and I think you’ll like what you get for the money.
Here’s a look at the launch screen of my Android Phone. I’ll admit there’s a lot going on here.
Install big Launcher and it will replace it with this interface. You’ll see battery life, time, and date clearly displayed. Plus there are large icons for phone, text, camera, and pictures.
There’s a simple and easy to read interface for the phones. It’s easy to find contacts and to check your call history.
You can add easy-to-see shortcuts for your favorite apps and contacts.
Texts are color-coded and displayed in large, clear fonts.
If you ever get confused by notifications that seem to disappear, this app offers full-screen notifications for calls and text messages.
There’s also an SOS button that can summon help in case of an emergency.
You can also use Big Launcher on a tablet. One purchase would cover both your phone and your tablet.
To download BIG Launcher, just open the Google Play app and search Big Launcher. As I said before, the app costs $10, but I think you get your money’s worth in this case.
