My father is 78 and is housebound after 16 years of suffering from the after-effects of several strokes. I showed him my iPad and he was entranced so we are going to get him a top of the line iPad. What are the best apps that we can put on the iPad for him? [more inside]

Our iPads synced with Exchange 2003. We can send email etc. The Global address list and Company calendar (in the public folder) are not working. Any way to do that with the current version of IOS? Or will IOS 5 do the trick.

I am looking for an app for my iPad that allows me to save word documents from the Internet, open them and edit them preferably with a handwriting ability, on the iPad without having to filter them through googledocs or convert them to PDFs. I am basically looking to eliminate having to go through another normal computer from the process so that I can download, view and edit my class note outlines right in class on my iPad. Any app suggestions? I am willing to invest a bit of money in an app if it does what I want.

I want to set up my iPad to connect to my home router from whatever wifi I happen to be on. I want a tunnel, I want all traffic going through the tunnel. All I want the wifi to see is that there is an iPad and it is connected to one place and there is data going back and forth. [more inside]

iPad 2 + Wireless Keyboard, in India. Currently Hindi is not offered as an international option on the iPad, which I guess is understandable since they'd have to create an entirely new touch-screen keyboard for it. But with an external keyboard, shouldn't I be able to use the QWERTY Hindi keyboard available on my Mac? Anyone have any idea how I can make this happen?

My New Yorker Ipad app is crashing and closing within 20 seconds of opening an issue. I wrote new yorker tech support and they sent these instructions but they don't work:
Please try resetting your app using the following instructions.
1. From the iPad home screen, tap twice on the home button and the apps
that are running on your device will appear along the bottom row.
2. Hold down the icons until they "shake".
3. Tap on the red circle to reset your application. This does not delete
4. Double tap the home button again to return to all of your apps.
5. Open the app and allow for your library to update. All of your issues
should now be available for download.
I think they addressed the wrong problem. I've rewrote them but because of the holiday there is no reply. Any suggestions of what to try next? I'd like to be able to read what I've paid for

What apps would a 50-year old Chinese or Vietnamese person have on their iPad?
I'm thinking of getting my parents iPads, since I've really enjoyed mine, think that it'd be simple enough for them to use, and easy enough to do technical support for. They aren't that technically savvy and don't speak English well so I'd like to get them started first on some easy to use apps where they could get content such as foreign news, music, and television shows.
