We’re continuing to share a deeper look at some of the unique features of our terrific new tablet for seniors, GrandPad, Powered by Consumer Cellular. In a previous post I invited you to meet GrandPad, and recently discussed how to create a secure family circle with its private network and family administrator functions, making it a safe tool for Mom and Dad.
The GrandPad experience is also very special for family members who want to stay connected to their aging loved ones. You can communicate directly with the GrandPad user with a convenient smartphone app! The GrandPad companion app is available to both iPhone and Android smartphone users, and using it means you always have quick and easy access to share special moments and take turns brightening each other’s day.
For enhanced security, only companions who are approved by the family administrator can download and use the app. Once you’ve become an approved companion, you can send and receive voice and video messages to and from mom or dad and share photos or videos with them. You can even link your social media accounts through the app so that items you post there will also be added to the GrandPad’s photo album. You’re also able to view and comment on things that other approved companions have shared, creating a dynamic family circle. Plus, the items you share are saved to the GrandPad’s photo library, so your loved one can enjoy them again and again.
Using the modern amenities of GrandPad’s Companion App, you can play a vital role in keeping Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Granddad in touch with people and events so they remain a vibrant part of our lives.
