Useful Apps: Older Adults, Seniors & Boomers

Useful Apps for Seniors and Boomers

This is the homepage for Tech-enhanced Life's Curated Collection of Useful Apps for Older Adults, Seniors & Boomers.

We believe that smartphone Apps have huge potential to improve the quality of life of older adults. But most Apps are developed for 20 year olds, and are not necessarily ideal for older adults. We have a research initiative devoted to finding useful apps for older adults, and evaluating them. We collect the results of our research on this "topic hub" page.

If you want to learn more about our work, you can read about our Apps for Older Adults Research Initiative and the Useful Apps Club.

Ideas for Apps for Seniors

At a conference organized by San Francisco's Institute on Aging, I ran an interactive "exploration", in which we asked attendees to vote on "Senior Apps they Like", or to submit ideas they have for "There should be an App for that". We got quite a few interesting ideas, and this article reports the results of the session.
