For many older adults, the pace at which technology moves is prohibitive.They can’t keep up and don’t want to, so many give up. The elderly are getting more tech savvy, participating in the internet in record numbers.
Most adults over 65 only use the Internet to check emails and browse news websites, but abstain from more complicated online tasks like banking, streaming television, or participating in social media sites. Andrew Dowling was working as the Director of Technology at a Fortune 100 tech company when he left in 2010, to become founder and CEO of Tapestry—an app that allows seniors to use Facebook and other social media in a simple, accessible way.
The app took off, and Dowling found he had tapped into a solution to more than one problem: tech illiteracy was one thing, but what Tapestry was also helping to solve was late-life loneliness.
Most recently, he’s developed Stitch—a “companion finding” app that some are calling “Tinder for seniors." The app aims to set up geographically close older people for purposes as diverse as romance, activities or simple phone conversations.
