High-tech companies don't usually target older adults. Nowadays, the app market is jammed with social media platforms, games, photo sharing and productivity tools for teenagers and twenty-somethings. Even though they might be branded differently, many apps aid the lives of best agers and give them helpful tools at hand to make life easier. Read here about the top 7 apps for seniors:
Available for iPhone, iPad, Android
MindMate has been described as “the ultimate in senior apps”. It is so much more than an app, it is a friend that is always there for the user. It helps the user to stay focused with a daily activity plan, ranging from physical exercises, via nutrition advice and health tips to mental exercises (or brain games). MindMate also provides entertainment through music and tv on demand. Apart from that, MindMate is Alzheimer’s and dementia friendly, and is used by many people living with cognitive decline and memory loss.

If you type “Why technology…” into google, the first search suggestion that comes up is “Why technology is bad”. Funnily enough … The same happens if you google alcohol or drugs. If you consider that and the fact that iPads and Apps are a rather new thing (the first iPads and tablets were released in 2010) it doesn’t come as a surprise that especially older generations are not the biggest fans of some of the “fancy” new gadgets.
