As the number of older people living worldwide and average life expectancy increases, the prevalence of chronic disease and age related impairments is also rising. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the most common chronic diseases later in life. In order to help assist persons with AD (PwAD) on a daily basis the current work has considered the design and evaluation of a number of smartphone based applications. These applications include an activity of daily living reminder, a picture dialing telephone and short messaging service (SMS) and a geo-fencing and one-hour reminder application. This paper provides initial details of the pre-study results, following the evaluation of the applications on a cohort of healthy adult users. In addition, details of how each of the application's user interfaces have been redeveloped are presented.
