These October 2015 life-stages trends range from familial banking apps that are designed for both kids and parents along with senior concierge services that aim to connect the aging population with companions that are passionate about helping others.

Standouts include senior concierge services -- Envoy gives senior citizens support with daily tasks while offering them a friend rather than an assigned caregiver -- and pregnancy-monitoring apps that ensure one's time expecting is worry-free and safe.

In addition to the month's interactive toys and kid-focused tech products, its other youth-centric examples include portable pop-up libraries that encourage child literacy and playful programming books that are both entertaining and educational for kids who will learn basic coding skills while enjoying fun stories.
