Hugmail: New app that helps families keep in touchCreated by Verity in Technology
انقر هنا الآن Senior isolation is a huge global problem; 50% of over 75s live alone* and on Christmas Day last year, half a million elderly people** spent the entire day without any human contact*. The Daily Telegraph recently referred to the situation as Britain’s “unseen epidemic of loneliness among the elderly”.

This leaves many offline grandparents feeling “locked out” of family communications and photos*** Their younger relatives are often well meaning but just don’t make the time to communicate regularly by ‘analogue means’. There is a huge amount of guilt out there – 75% (28m) of UK adults feel they should contact their elderly relatives/friends more often****.

It is a service that turns digital photos stored on your mobile, computer and Facebook into real printed postcards and sends them anywhere in the world for just £1.49. Sending a Hugmail takes less than 2 minutes and makes a huge difference when it lands on the doormats of a loved one.
