Android is one of the most advanced mobile operating system at present. However, not all like these kind of complicated interface and functionality. Well, our grandparents are the ones who are not familiar with the essence of technology and they really do find it difficult to use a smartphone because of it’s complicated menu options and other features. I think in no time institutes will be there to tech them for money, haha jokes apart.
How to simplify android for grandparents?
Well, Today we are going to show you how you can simplify the Android’s UI and interface for your grand parents who are not able to use Android properly or find it difficult to use or have eye problems which makes the small words on the screen completely disappear for them. We will be discussing the way to change the interface and why you should do it with your grandparent’s smartphone.
We will be doing the task with the help of a launcher, it’s name is ‘Wiser’ I have been using this launcher for about 3 days now not because I’m having any such mentioned issues. I wanted to test it myself to see if it could really be helpful for the audience I’m sharing for! I have added the Playstore link of the launcher above. You just need to install it like a regular app on your grandparent’s smartphone or anyone’s phone and after the installation when you will go to homescreen it will ask you to set it as default launcher, just confirm it and you are done.
Now, I will be telling you the things that i liked or noticed about the launcher which made me to recommend to all of you.
- It gives simple 4 slides on the screen and excludes all the other things.
- The icons it shows are big and round which makes them recognizable.
- It comes with inbuilt feature to add limited applications on the screen which your grandparents will be using the most (Call, messages, contacts).
- You can add major people’s contact shortcut on the screen so they can call them directly without any issues.
- It gives a very simple and flat dialer with large icons. This helps them to make calls very easy.
- In this launcher all notifications will be shown in on of the homescreen slide which makes it very easy. It also shows large texts and images for convenience.
- The launcher is very fluid and responsive.
