Oscar Senior app creates senior friendly tablets

Techstination feature for Thursday, June 22, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Technology can sometimes be frustrating and confusing for all of us.   For many older consumers it can be even more difficult.   So a company called Oscar Senior has developed an app that can turn pretty much any tablet into a senior friendly device that can be remotely administered by a relative or friend.   It makes video and other forms of communication easy…and has a pretty close to unbreakable interface.   CEO Tomas Posker originally developed the software to help him communicate with his grandmother back in the Czech Republic…

“Family members can remotely set up all the features.  So it could be fully customizable depending on a senior’s skill.”

For seniors…the app is free.  The subscription for those communicating with them is a very reasonable ten dollars a year.     You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
