Aarp just finished scouting out some good APPs for us babyboomers and I love this one. It’s called “HeyTell”, and let me tell you,it’s great. It’s a free app you can download from your iphone or droid. Once installed, you make sure your name and number is in your phone directory and then just follow the instructions for adding whomever you want to your list. If you need to speak to them, you don’t have to dial them or text them. All you do is go to your HeyTell and push the name of whom you need to speak to or just leave a message, and then just push the talk button and start speaking. So, if you suffer from arthritis, like I do, it makes speaking on a cell so much easier.
If there is an emergency, just push the button to talk on your HeyTell and you can use it like a walkie talkie. And if you need them to show their location or you want them to know your location, you can add the feature for those you want to. So, don’t worry. The only way anyone knows where you are is if you allow it. There are different privacy levels on the app to allow different people different levels.
I love the way mobile telephones are incorporating all kinds of apps that work so well for us babyboomers. It’s getting easier and easier. Have fun!
