Targeted to the families of seniors as well as seniors themselves, iBuster is a cloud-based service that integrates robust security and privacy practices with an easy-to-use, senior-friendly interface to allow access to popular third-party apps alongside proprietary applications. “It’s an environment that allows you to run third-party applications – like YouTube, Facebook, and so forth. What we want to do is allow seniors to be able to interact with others and interact with the internet,” Guillermo explained.
The iBuster interface will include a variety of apps for different activities: games, photos, links, movies, mail, home health, content, video chat, and community. Each of these will include a proprietary app as well as options for third-party apps that have been “vetted by our security and privacy team.” Guillermo showed us a mockup of this interface, explaining that “activities are on the left, and on the right, you have applications that you can use to actually perform those activities.”
