WHY WE DEVELOPED THIS APP:
Today, mobile devices are widely used throughout the world. We can easily send messages to each other.
However, it is often the case that the elderly and the handicapped experience difficulty with the use of a keyboard.
We hope that anyone can send messages easily by using this app.
