    History of the Family App
  • The Family App
  • History of the Family App

    The early version of the Family App was written for our grandfather, Neville. Neville’s body was not keeping up with his brain, his eyes were starting to cloud and his hands were unsteady. Consequently, keeping him entertained and engaged during the day was a challenge. As a family we wanted a better quality of life for our grandfather, a life where he is entertained, connected and stimulated. And so, the Family App was born. An app where family could upload music, podcasts and more to a central website which would automatically sync with his device. Large colour buttons were programmed onto his device to allow Neville intuitive and independent App navigation. The Family App became a vital part of his life until well after his 100th Birthday, providing stimulation and entertainment to each day.
