The best apps for baby boomers

Among the apps here is a symptom checker for boomers who aren't feeling well.

Silver Surf is “the Web browser equivalent of a large-print book.” Features include “large-text buttons and the ability to zoom in on small text.” (Apple products only)

Words With Friends applies the logic that “the older you get, the more you want to play Scrabble.” This Scrabble-like app for Apple products helps you take on opponents remotely, giving each player days to make a move.

iTriage is a symptom checker to save you possible trips to the doctor. Simply “punch in your symptoms and view possible diagnoses.” This free iPhone app even gives directions to the nearest hospital and emergency-room wait times.

Golf GPS Range Finder allows you, whenever you’re on a fairway, to “drop pins on a satellite view of your current hole and calculate the distance” of your next shot.
