Yes, the elderly can use the Apple iPhone thanks to Silverline apps
bigger sized buttons for easier navigation. The "Well-Being" app can set a reminder when it is time to take your meds and the "Emergency" button is your one press connection to the cops or medical help for those times when you've fallen and can't get up.
The company, based in Singapore, wants to keep the elderly connected to the rest of the world. And why not let them stay young by carrying around a young man's handset? While the service is not available yet in the states, we wouldn't be surprised to see an enterprising carrier deciding to give Silverline a shot. Besides, the elderly are more apt to pay their bills on time. Hear that, carriers? For more information on the program, visit the sourcelink.
