Default [APP][2.3+] Crescendo 1.0.3 - A Simple Homescreen

Hey XDA,

I've got a new app, and I would love some help in testing it and finding any bugs!

Crescendo Launcher is a homescreen replacement that makes it easier for seniors (or kids!) to use an Android phone or tablet.


Features
Quote:
  • NetManage: Crescendo can automatically toggle mobile data or WiFi if an app requires it. (Data is turned off after the screen is turned off)
  • Simple Apps: Crescendo comes with several simplified apps, including an easy-to-use web browser and flashlight.
  • Simple Settings: One click access to Ringer, WiFi and Mobile Data settings
  • Help Central: A comprehensive help center that teaches users how to use their device. It's fully illustrated!
  • App Drawer: An accessible app drawer with big icons.

FAQ
Quote:
Q: The app crashed!
A: Please click the 'Report' button on the force close dialog - this lets me view a crash log. If you don't want to do this, please pull a logcat and either post it in the thread or PM it to me. I can't fix the error if I don't know what it is. Thanks!

Q: I would like to see feature X and Y
A: Awesome! Just post in this thread and I'll get back to you ASAP.


Upcoming Features/Bug Fixes

v 1.0.2 Will be released at 8:00 PM EST!
  • [Fixed v 1.0.2] Home Button Bug
  • Auto location for weather
