    Necta Launcher ( Even children and senior can use)'s review

    A home replacement designed to help elder and kids make the most of their smartphones

    • User-friendly interface
    • Runs smoothly
    • SOS and Position buttons
    • Necta Locker
    • Language support (only English)
    • Needs a default Medical Details shortcut

    "Keep it simple"

    Let's admit it. Technology is a complex thing and people who aren't used to deal with it may find it difficult to master (have you heard about the Digital Divide). Smartphones are great tools for everyone but due to the latter, some potential users can stay away of its benefits because of that barrier of entry.

    Necta Launcher comes to lower the walls, or put them down directly. In case you aren't familiar with Android launchers, you should know that they're like skins that change the appearance and the performance of your device. No need to flash ROMs, no need to be root. Just install the app and enjoy.

    Necta Launcher simplifies the appearance of any Android device and limit its features to only those a low-profile user may need. Thus, its grid-layout with big buttons give access to hour, network signal and battery, date and weather forecast, calls and favorite contacts, SMS, camera, gallery, SOS button, position and flashlight. All the basic benefits of any connected devices brought together in a user-friendly interface.

    Obviously, those are the default shortcuts but they can be added/removed at users' whim. Given the potential users of this launcher (elder and kids) the SOS and the Position buttons are excellent tools to locate your loved ones in case of emergency. In fact, SOS message/call to preset contacts can also be sent just by "waving hands" over the device. Regarding position, 24/7 position tracking can also be ON for everyone's relief.

    Necta Launcher goes for a minimalist style, which is sober yet more intuitive and battery-saving. The launcher runs smoothly and controls are responsive. Only two catches worth to mention: First, language support (only available in English so far). Second, it needs a default shortcut with medical details of the device owner: blood type, doctor's number, diabetic, allergies, etc.

    Regardless, one of the best elder/kids-friendly Android launchers.
