Most phones have a touch screen display,
but their interface is very difficult to use for old people.

Seniors have eye & vision problems, but they do not feel old yet!
They want to be active, communicate with friends, use a camera.

Easy Phone is optimized for simple touch input.
All items are large, contacts have photos.

The interface is based on a research in CTU in Prague
and on many usability tests with old people.

Easy Phone looks like a classic feature phone.
Lists of contacts, messages and applications are enlarged.

It completely replaces system panels and notifications.

Interface is very smooth, animated and fully
accelerated on a GPU.
