Even so, the phone was adapted as easily as possible, which, however, does not apply to it in the case of the current products of the series. In addition to the development of the phones themselves, Doro also focuses on the development of adequate software.
One of the results is the application for managing the phone with the name My Doro Manager, which simplifies the control of the smartphone. In addition to the shared file, it is very easy to help the senior with the phone settings. So seniors don’t have to panic when, for example, they accidentally turn off the sound of a pen or any other feature of the phone. Call even a half text message and the other party is able to remotely wiggle the phone during the desired setting. The senior does not have to wait for a long time in the menu, which will come to him.

The activity of the phone itself is displayed (for example, when it is lifted from the table), as well as the user’s movement with the nm. This function can be considered as a kind of birth of a standard SOS button, in contrast, it does not rely only on the activity of the user himself. There may be situations where he will be far from the phone and will not be able to press the button.
If the smartphone has been idle for a long time, the members of the application are notified. In addition, the position of the senior can be displayed on the map, and the positions of the other groups are also shown.
