|Abstract:||This paper presents recommendations for avoiding or eliminating unnecessary barriers to mobile application usage by older generations. The aim of this paper is to help ensure that the design of mobile applications is accessible for elderly persons. The recommendations are written in such a way as to be easily understandable for both app developers and app commissioners. In order to examine the needs of the 65-plus generation with regard to user-friendly applications, a research project was conducted with 10 elderly users. This consisted of three phases: a focus group, usability tests of four commonly-used mobile apps, and, finally, an open discussion with the test group about their experience. The objective of the research was to discover the views of older users and to identify specific barriers encountered when using mobile applications. Based on the results, ten key areas were identified for age-appropriate mobile app design.|
