Description

This is a phone app made specifically foroldpeople.

Important: please read this text completely in order toknowhow to use it!)

For some aged people this is the best way to use asmartphone.Often, older people cannot handle the features of asmartphone("what have I done wrong now?"), but they want to see thepictureof the person they like to call, and the contacts list canbe keptup to date by someone else.

I tried to make the best-effort app:

- all actions are done using high-contrast buttons, no swipeorother actions that are unexpected to the old user
- action areas are not near to the frame so it's less likelytotouch them by just trying to hold the phone in the hand
- jitter is blocked and does not cause multiple actions
- large texts
- highlighted notice on low battery state ormissingconnectivity
- list of missed calls
- date/time screen (closing itself after a while)
- reception of SMSes
- as far as possible, the hardware keys are disabled againstwronguse. This might better or worse depending on the hardwareandAndroid version, so you might need to put a tape over them (seetipbelow).
- uses google contacts, so the contacts can be managed bysomeoneelse (children/grandchildren/...)
- this app needs to be installed as launcher!
-important: added 'exit' function to launch the phone's settingsbypressing the 'volume up' key for 10 seconds (important!)

Please, feedback is valuable and welcome, and Ill do my besttoimprove. But suggestions for new features must have seriousreasonsas the phone must stay SIMPLE!

Tip from our experience: Nexus S with Android 4.1 (up-ordowngraded). Uninstall Google App, Google+, Maps,Hangouts,StreetView and YouTube and some other bloatware: firstuninstallthe updates, then deactivate them (order is important!).Using thesettings, disable the hardware keys (CyanogenMod makesthat easy!)so that they are non-active. Then there's not much thatcan gowrong.

Wakeup Light Alarm Clock 1.9.23a APK
Want to wake up more relaxed, in a better mood? I suggest you trythis Alarm Clock. "Personal Sunrise" is a dawn simulator forAndroid devices. It helps to wake up more easily in the morning, asyour body prepares for wakeup due to the increasing light of thedisplay. No more waking up from deep sleep phases. You can try theapp for longer than 2 hours - I will re-fund you without hesitationif you it does not fulfill your needs. You need to have severaldays to find out. If it does not satisfy you, please drop me a notewith your order ID and - may I kindly ask - the reason so that Ihave a chance to improve the app. Enhanced features include supportof: the Hue Personal Lighting System from Philips the FHEM homeautomation (allows commanding the coffee machine, roller blinds,...) Wikipedia says "Dawn simulation is a technique originallydeveloped to help treat seasonal affective disorder, but can beused as a soundless alarm clock to wake up the body naturally.Typically, the treatment involves timing lights in the bedroom tocome on gradually, over a period of 30 minutes to 2 hours, beforeawakening.". WakeLight offers you several configuration options forthe light simulation (sequence length, brightness curve, min/maxbrightness) and the sound (alarm sound, snooze timing and sound) incombination with the comfort of periodic alarm templates (withsingle-alarm removal), and of course single-alarm times. See thepictures. This app is very handy when you're travelling: take yourdawn simulation with you! ☆ ☆ ☆ It was intended to be used withtablets of at least 7 inches, but I have enough positive feedbackof users with even smaller devices to be able to state it can begood to try with such a small device (especially, of course, if youwant to use Hue lights). It depends on your light sensitivity, ofcourse, and the brightness of your environment - but you will beastonished as it works subconscious. Just try, I think you will notregret it. Anyway, using HUE or FHEM the size of the device doesnot matter any more at all!These systems will handle thesimulation. Features: ✓ alarm templates for repetition as well asone-time alarms ✓ alarm tone can be internal tones, ringtones,playlists, external music and music stream from the internet ✓disable or change alarm time even of a one-time alarm of a template✓ brightness, duration and sounds configurable, some soundscontained in the package ✓ optional display of weather forecast andsunrise/set times (using the free plugin downloadable from theshop) ✓ clean and easy-to-use user interface ✓ optionally display aclock with automatic brightness control (in case a brightnesssensor is available) that gets brighter when touched ✓ optionaltext-to-speech reading of the actual time during the alarm ✓external apps can set alarms using the standard intent, for exampleGoogle Now "wake me up at 6:30" ✓ 'dusk simulation': a red displaywill to improve falling asleep as well as your sleep. …and muchmore… You can find a more exhausting overview on my homepage athttps://android.chk.digital/personal-sunrise/features/ ═════ A fewwords concerning privacy: 'Personal Sunrise' does not collect anydata and does not require a network except for optional functionslike streaming music. Concerning the rights needed (and used),please refer to my homepage athttps://android.chk.digital/personal-sunrise/required-rights/.
Wakeup Light Generic Plugin 1.3.21a APK
This is only a helper plugin for my 'Personal Sunrise' app. Byusing a plugin I don't need some rights in the main app forfeatures that some people do not need. NETWORK ACCESS: - WeatherForecast LOCATION SERVICES: - It's just to supply the locationinformation for the sunrise/sunset calculation CAMERA/FLASH: -allows 'Personal Sunrise' to use the flashlight LED as assistancefor the alarm. CAMERA is needed in order to be able to use theFLASHLIGHT.
Multi Timer "Kitty" 1.5.2 APK
Egg timer? Reminder alarm? Alarm for a healthy sleep after dinner?Cooking Timer? Originally, "Multi Timer" was planned as simplekitchen timer (originally "KITchen TImer", thus "Kitty"), but as itgrew up, it became a universal timer app. (The reasons of therights that "Multi Timer" needs are given at the end of thisdescription) Do you want to: * be able to run multiple timersconcurrently, clearly arranged? * be able to start timers with onlyone touch (from the homescreen, even the dock for immediateaccess)? * manage pre-configured timers with own icons and sounds?* have optimal use of different layouts of Smartphone and Tablet? *see the remaining time of the next timer in the notification tray?* have timer actions being read out aloud? * ... and othernice-to-haves My main point was: simple and fast handling, and easeof use.
YACO - Important System Infos always visible 1.9.8d APK
Ever missed some important date while watching a video? Batterydown? Connection bad or lost? Expensive Roaming?! Too muchdownload?That's what these "overlay" apps are for: to display someinformation all the time, not caring whether the app "below" is afullscreen app or not. Of course it may overlap other data on thescreen, that is why it is very flexible about what data to show,how abbreviated, omitting unnecessary units (don't tell that yourphysics teacher...), and a quick-hide feature. "YACO" comes from"Yet another [Clock] Overlay" - I put "clock" in brackets, as itstarted with a clock, but now it grew to an app showing a wholebunch of information! What could the YACO acronym now stand for? Ihave no idea.The app is free and was developed for fun andlearning.Displayable items:✓ time with and without seconds, dateand weekday✓ battery state, approximate remaining charge/dischargetime✓ GPS data available with speed, height, climb/sink rate andcount of satellites, coordinates. Fun to watch in a plane. ✓there's also the connection state:Wifi: SSID, speed, frequency,IPV4 address, up-/download indicator, daily or monthly data volume,current up-/download rateMobile: connection type, roaming warning,provider, signal strength, up-/download indicator, daily or monthlydata volume, up-/download rateinactive Mobile (DualSIM): signalstrength, to be able to see the connection strength of the inactiveSIMAAAAND as just mentioned DualSIM support (>= Android 5.1):information about the voice SIM: carrier, signal strength, roamingwarningIt is Android 6 permission restrictions aware, so when youget an Android error "Screen Overlay Detected", or if you are notable to grant a permission by touching the button in the dialogwhere you shall grant it, it is easy to temporarily disable YACOfor 5 minutes using its notification entry's "pause" button. Itwill automatically re-appear after that time. Simple andeffective.This inconvenience can even be circumvented if you allowYACO to be an "accessibility app" (using a shortcut link inside theapp's "Info" page makes it easy). Then it can watch out for thepermission dialog and disable itself until it's safe to show upagain. This way you have an overlay that does not intervene withthe permission popup. Yet you must trust me that I don't use thebehaviour checks for anything except the hide and show for thatsole purpose (BTW: I do promise I don't!). If your device has aproximity sensor, covering it can hide YACO so that the items beloware uncovered. I'd like to have feedback (can be done in the app).This is very important for me.More information is given at theapp's homepage, https://android.chk.digital/yaco/. This app livesand grows and improves using your feedback. Permissions:- GPS -well, for GPS data- Access Phone State, Network state, Coarselocation data: for the information about the data connection, theAndroid APIs I use need these.This app uses Accessibility Services.Well- only if you choose to use the Auto-Hide feature! It is notnecessary.
