Here are a selection of Android exclusive exercise apps suitable for phones or tablets that are specifically targeted towards the elderly. In comparison to general fitness apps, these exercises are overall gentler, put less stress on joints, focus on senior relevant topics such as balance, arthritis, and limited range of movement. Many of these exercises can also be completed while remaining sitting for those seniors who may be wheelchair bound or otherwise have trouble standing for extended lengths of time.
In comparison to iOS exclusive or cross platform apps, these Android fitness apps tend to be completely free or free with ads or in-app premium content purchases.
