Last week we were able to attend our first Baby Boomer Smartphone Workshop at the Verizon Store in Palm Beach Gardens. The reason why this is so important? Because my husband just got his first smartphone towards the end of last year. This was a great way for him to get some needed info about mobile apps that are more geared to his Baby Boomer lifestyle!
This is a sponsored post with Verizon. All opinions are 100% my own.
What we learned is there are some great mobile apps that many of us are unaware of. There were many people there at the workshop over the age of 55 who wanted to know more about Verizon’s 55+ Program and how their smartphones work!
