What is HiLois?

HiLois is a private social network centered around a family member, the “VIP,” who may be feeling disconnected and may have challenges with technology. HiLois is a premiere app for seniors living alone.

HiLois is a photo sharing app that lets Circle members instantly send messages and photos to the VIP. The VIP receives the photos and messages with a cheerful chime. No action required. The photos and messages enter into a slide-like photo carousel that can run continuously.

The more pictures and messages sent, the more the VIP has to enjoy. Everyone in the circle sees each other's messages in a timeline to encourage sharing.

To get started watch the videos below.

How to Share a Photo



HiLois as seen on NBC


HiLois combines a digital photo frame app specifically for the iPad or Android tablet with a feature-rich mobile app for the iPhone, Android smartphone, or tablet, resulting in a seamless social support network. HiLois Circles support any combination of Android and Apple devices.


Mom’s tablet is the window to her family. Keep the tablet on a table, dresser, counter or mounted to the wall. The family sends pictures and messages from the smartphone as easily as sending a text message. It’s all automatic – mom can do a lot or nothing at all. The photos and messages are displayed right on the tablet. Pictures scroll like a digital photo frame, and messages appear in big, bold letters. It's just a great senior care app!

The Circle is a private social network. It includes everyone mom or dad cares about, including friends, family, and anyone who wants to share their precious moments, such as a photo from the soccer game happening right now, or a simple message, "I love you, mom!” It's simply one of the best ipad apps for elderly! And it's available for Android, Kindle Fire, and other tablets and devices!

The app can present a question (difficulty level remotely set) when a photo arrives. It does not matter if the answer is right or wrong, but it stimulates the VIP and makes them think. Categories such as arithmetic, geography, politics, cooking, movies, and more are found in the Brain Teaser Mode.

One User becomes the administrator and controls the photo delivery rate, time frames, Brain Teaser Mode levels/categories and more. Anyone in the Circle can remotely pause on a particular image so you can talk to the VIP about that specific photo or message. The VIP can interact with the app or do nothing and simply enjoy photos and messages from the family. By seeing if the VIP is online and how they are responding to new posts, HiLois makes for a basic elderly monitoring app.
