Singapore's elderly should have an easier time understanding their smartphones thanks to the Silverline apps. Silverline is actually an app suite meant to make smartphones easier for the elderly to understand. The Silverline apps include a visual contacts book and a shortcut to the camera. They also help seniors track when to keep their medicine, provide inspirational quotes (the Well Being app), offer a shortcut to the phone's keypad and feature a button that dials emergency services when pressed.
It wouldn't be a reach to say that most youth are confused by their shiny new smartphone the first time they take it out of the box. The same is true of the elderly, but on a much higher level. With people living longer than ever before, it won't be long until a company creates a smartphone designed strictly for senior citizens.
