Summary

Simplified phone ‘home’ screen for older people, and for people with visual impairment (and even for anyone who dislikes numerous phone icons). Replaces the common user interface of any Android phone. Designed for readability and ease of use. Large text and large colorful icons help the user to access the phone’s most important facilities. Controlled by single touches, with no swipes or long presses. Shortcuts and lists give access to apps. Three font sizes allow the screen to be tailored to the user’s degree of sight disability, while ‘TalkBack’, an open-source Android screenreader, offers spoken feedback for blind users.

Reviewer: Living Well with Disability, USA
Review: “Providing an oversized, simplistic presentation style, ‘BIG Launcher’ increases the size of text, and places applications on the home screen in colourful square boxes. This app also supplies a large ‘SOS’ button, which allows the user to call a pre-determined phone number, or send an emergency text message with GPS coordinates. All functions can be customised for ideal visibility and use.”
