Over 40 Magnifier & Flashlight

It happens to most of us eventually – trying to read the small print on jars is often the first sign our eyesight isn’t what it used to be in our thirties – and a simple app that magnifies text quickly and without fuss is something that I have been looking for lately. Over 40

YoWindow Weather

I must admit, I’m a bit of a weather app geek plus I also like live wallpapers so when I saw this one was on sale at Google Play as the ‘Deal of the Week’ for just A$0.20 I grabbed a copy to review. After using it as my live wallpaper for a few days,

Google Opinion Rewards

Apps and games in the Google Play Store are very affordable, but for those on a tight budget or if you want to regularly buy an app, Google Opinion Rewards is the answer for you. Here’s how it works – Google pays you to respond to quick surveys to aid market research. In my case

MetroView Nav Australia & NZ

The fact that you can get as good as (if not better) GPS navigation on a phone as by using a separate GPS navigation device is one of the best reasons to have a smartphone these days. An offline app that uses its own quality maps is much better than those that require the internet

FREE Office : Textmaker Mobile

It’s not often you find something completely free that performs perfectly and has no ads. FREE Office, made by German company Softmaker Software is one of those apps that I suspect many users will end up installing. From their description: ‘Office: TextMaker Mobile is the only word processor for Android that lets you open, edit,

YouTube Kids

Most grandparents try to get their grandchildren involved in outdoor play or old-fashioned games when they visit, but sometimes the little darlings just need some ‘screen time’ to themselves and usually YouTube is a favourite among all age groups. There is some unsavoury video on there and some that at least aren’t suitable for younger


This is one handy app that I stumbled across recently. If you have read the review of Tinfoil for Facebook I wrote recently, you will know how I prefer to use more secure apps when viewing the Facebook feed. However one issue I did find when jumping from a Facebook feed to a website –

Camps Australia Wide

As promised, here is the review of the latest version of the Camps Australia Wide app. The previous version doesn’t have great reviews in the Google Play store, but the new version seems to have addressed the problems which were mainly about the map. The Camp Australia Wide books are known as the Aussie campers ‘bible’ and

8,500+ Drink Recipes Free

Bit of a different app review from the usual this time. Seniors have been known to like a ‘tipple’ much like everyone and when you finally get some time on your hands learning how to make some of the more exotic cocktails is something I have tried to do – I just wish I had

Telstra Air

If you are a Telstra customer you probably already know that they have recently given us access to their free WiFi hotspots all over Australia (plus more than 14 million ‘Fon’ hotspots worldwide apparently) until 30th June 2016. If you didn’t already know about it then I suggest you signup soon – after all, you don’t

Drippler Tips for your Android

I like to keep up to date with the latest apps and anything Android and Drippler is an app that makes it easy to do this. While it might not suit all seniors, if you have an interest in new technology and keeping up with changes and news relating to just Android, then this app

Device Assist

Here at Androids4Seniors we try to help seniors with technology that they have difficulty with. After all, many of us in the older age group didn’t grow up with computers or mobile phones and learning something new can be a challenge. Remember when we used to get thick paper manuals with every new technical appliance
