Nowadays, there are a lot of new technical devices, which influence both our administrative and private life. But does everyone can use these features? Do the developers care about people, who can’t use the computer? Not in all cases, and this may cause social separation.

I write about eight applications in my thesis, which are against this separation. They are simple to use, suppor Internet communication. They are optimized in most cases for elderly people.

After the analysis of other applications I have designed and developed my own application, which can read and send messages through Facebook, and manage weather forecast reports. I used this popular social network, because I wanted to reduce the generational differences. My application was tested by four people from the target user group.
