Abstract: In this research paper, it will explore the issues regarding the user interface design for elderly mobile phone users and what the factors lead to the limitations of using the mobile applications. Besides, this study also discuss about a mental model, what is it means and how we are going to assess a mental model by using a few methodologies that act as an approach to solving the problem faced by elderly when using particular mobile applications. Moreover, the mental model will work as a vital element in this research because it will affect the interface design that we will develop in future progress. Hence, this research will be an age-related matter as it will only focus on what are the elderly expect in interface design so that hopefully it will increase the elderlys usability and learnability when using a mobile applications.
