With many possibilities on my homepage, it's helpful to have a clear entry point to avoid Infinite content anti-pattern.
Lots of icons are presented as a giant list with no visible descriptions, which makes it necessary to click around to get a sense of what is there. Text is available for screen readers or by hovering on desktop (which is not available on mobile devices). There is a poor sense of what to click on next as there is not enough information for people to make decisions.
Names and descriptions for each icon are visible, enabling the ability to glance and understand what might be most relevant. All information is displayed without special gestures. There is an 'about' section which helps some people orient themselves better.
