Similar in concept to AIO is Olauncher Clutter Free, we are also working in make this app eink friendly (eg. minimizing animations, no icons only text, resizable text, only black and white colors...)

it's worth a try:

For calendar I use Simple Calendar Pro from F-Droid. It's really customizable as other Simple Mobile Tools.

I'm agree with you, but still I have not been able to find any better.

Take a look at "Simple Contacts Pro" & "Simple Dialer" in F-Droid. Both combined completely replace the needed of any Chinese app for dialer in the A5 CC Pro.

At this point I also would like to add the best camera app I have been able to test on this phone Hedge Cam 2. Try on: https://sourceforge.net/projects/hedgecam/

I ran into problems with Fairmail for the 2-step authentication that has been forced since May, iirc. Wasn't able to log in using an app password. So I switched to Edison mail.

I really like the simple dailer and contacts app: Great to be rid of the Chinese characters. Hedgecam is also a great improvement.

I use Etar and DAVx5 for calendar and contacts (together with OpenVPN to and Radicale on my homeserver.) Will give simple calendar a try, though.

For the launcher I am liking Niagara Launcher. However, I have configured Vision launcher and it will take some time to tune Niagara.

What I am irritated about is the Gallery app. I can't seem to find anything. [Italics]Does anyone know a better alternative?[/italics]

For gallery app, try Camera Roll: GitHub - kollerlukas/Camera-Roll-Android-App: Simple Galley App for Android, with lovely Material Design. - https://github.com/kollerlukas/Camera-Roll-Android-App

Super customizable app very suitable for eink screens
