Wonderful new IPad App looking for testers!

Posted March 23rd 2017

I’ve been working on an app for iPad that would allow you, from a distance, to update the senior’s iPad with daily photos, slideshows, voice messages, home videos, old time radio or TV shows, music, movies, each night, *unattended*, so that your senior just turns on their iPad (presses the Home button twice or has someone help them with that), and there’s the new stuff.  All in a SUPER easy user interface of only 4 picture-buttons to touch.  In some instances, this serves as Reminiscence Therapy.  Others, it’s just sheer enjoyment and recreation. But I need testers, before I start to charge for this app/service. I need up to 100 testers that would get this free for a year!
