Seniors

Folktells is the easiest way for family & friends to connect and share with seniors who aren’t able to use social media and messaging.

Share Plan

Share remotely with
a Share Plan

Can't be there in person? A subscription to a Folktells Share Plan adds the ability to share online with groups of family and friends.

Group members can use their own devices to create stories about online shared albums for everyone, including the senior members of the family, to enjoy anytime.

What about messaging?

Share + Message

'In-the-moment' fun with the Share + Messaging Plan*

Subscribing to a Share + Messaging Plan* adds the ability for the subscriber to receive text & photo messages (SMS/MMS) with no phone plan required.

Folktells receives the messages, collects them, and presents easy-to-enjoy stories about those in-the-moment experiences. Senders don't need to have Folktells, expanding the circle of family & friends who can connect and share with the senior even more.

How do I get Folktells?
