Singapore-based Silverline is hoping to help the older generation be affluent with a smartphone as a high school freshman. Silverline suite of apps intend to make smartphones easier to understand for the elderly.
To acquaint seniors with the smartphone experience, Silverline simplifies vital functions. For example the Connect app makes contact lists more visual by making the photographs of each person much more apparent. The Discover app removes the additional elements of camera functions and drops it to just a point and shoot with caption options. Other apps also help seniors stay on top of medication intervals and provide quick buttons for emergency contact options.
Helping seniors stay in touch with our changing society is important and tools to help them use the useful functions of a smartphone will only better lives. Maybe someone will invent a niche smartphone just for seniors?
