If you’re an Android user, then you know how hard it could be to find the right device for you. There are hundreds of different Android devices and each device servers a different type of user. When it comes to accessibility, though, it gets even trickier! Perhaps you like the Nexus 5, but the icons are too small. Maybe you like the Galaxy S3, but the icons are not themed well, so it makes it hard to see what icon is for which app. Well, worry no longer! Because Android is so customizable, you’re able to change the appearance of your entire Android experience with something called Launchers.

Essentially, a launcher is a downloadable application (software) that changes, extends and modifies your home-screen’s functionality. So, for example, if you’re into technology and would like your phone to look “techie”, you can download a 3D Launcher and make your phone have really cool effects. If you’d like to keep it simple, you can even download a launcher that will make your Android look exactly like an iPhone. [/wptab]
