Staying socially connected can be tough for those less tech-savvy than others during Covid-19

That’s why a Matamata woman has created Kitcal, a simpler device than an I-Pad or Tablet

Founder Julie Caldwell told Kate Hawkesby it's designed for senior citizens and only has one app.

"It has a calendar, it has messaging, it has photos and videos, and it has a Keep in Touch feature, so people can check in."
