Sprint Helps Elderly With Active Senior ID Pack

Sprint has just released the Active Senior ID pack as the latest among a growing list of helpful Sprint ID packs.

If you’re not familiar, Sprint “ID Packs” are packages of content that deliver a mobile experience, including applications, widgets, ringtones, wallpapers, and more.

The Active Senior ID pack, however, is a service designed to help simplify smartphone usage for senior citizens.

Specifically, the Active Senior ID pack contains about 20 senior-friendly applications and services, eliminating the confusion often associated with searching for useful apps in an app store featuring 600,000+ applications.

Among the most important aspects of the offering is the readily available access to important information from AARP, WebMD, USA Today, Yahoo Finance, Accuweather and Stock Quote, to name a few. Additionally:

  • Never forget to take important medications on time with MedsTimer.
  • Put safety first with Fall Detector and ICE (In Case of Emergency).
  • Receive word-for-word captions of everything said to them on mobile phone calls with Wireless CapTel by Sprint.
  • Stay in touch with family and friends with Flickr and Facebook.

“We commend Sprint for creating a solution that simplifies the smartphone experience, allowing our aging population to easily obtain helpful applications for their smartphone geared toward their specific needs,” says Sami Hassanyeh, SVP Digital Strategy & Operations at AARP. “I’m sure our AARP members, as well as any mature consumer, will benefit not only from our AARP application that’s included in this ID pack but also from the many other apps that were thoughtfully pieced together by Sprint for the aging demographic.”
