Downloadable interface simplifies Android phones for elderly users

Now in beta, Threedom is a downloadable interface from UK-based Ribot that bills itself as “the simple, three-button phone.”

We’ve featured a number of simple phones in recent months that target consumer segments including seniors and the visually impaired. The latest example to catch our eye, however, isn’t actually a phone, but rather an extremely simple interface for Android devices. Now in beta, Threedom is a downloadable interface from UK-based Ribot that bills itself as “the simple, three-button phone.” Targeting users with impaired dexterity, Threedom is “the first simple interface built to allow anyone to easily use a touchscreen mobile,” in Ribot’s own words. Toward that end, the interface features a chunky, simple design with just three large buttons for easy navigation through contacts, texts, music, photos and more. A video on the Threedom site demonstrates the interface in action. As mobile computing continues to take over the world, accessibility is more important than ever, and a flexible interface that can be used on multiple devices makes good sense. How is your brand helping the elderly and impaired stay connected? Spotted by: Spencer
