iPad 2 apps for 86yo grandmother? It's her birthday, and my dad got her an iPad 2 - what apps/set up would you suggest?
She uses her computer primarily for email, but doesn't get back to the room it is in often anymore. My dad has already set up her email and downloaded a book for her - what apps would you suggest? We're hoping she can easily learn to use it, and it will help alleviate her boredom.
She does not use Facebook, or any social networking.

Are there any mobile apps that support community/collaborative remix? Apps that go beyond your own social network (i.e. Facebook/Twitter sharing), but post to their own public community. There are thousands of sites like that on the web, but the only ones I can find on iOS are Mixel
and Make Pixel Art
, and that seems crazy

I'm looking for an iPad stylus that's good for quick notes and rough sketches. I already have an AluPen, which is fine, but a little short, with a tip that's a little too fat and squishy. I've read all the answers to prior questions on the topic, and they were helpful, but the technology changes so quickly, and none sold me on any particular option. Other things you should know: I have basically no artistic artistic ability, I have decent handwriting but find translating it to the iPad difficult, and I'm going to use the stylus mostly for keeping notes on and outlining my various projects using the new Paper app.

What is the best solution for blogging with an iPad? Is anyone actually doing this? I'd like to be able to travel with just an ipad and a bluetooth keyboard instead of my laptop. What I need: CC photo search and image resizing, the ability to easily add links, and upload to a wordpress blog to which I'm a contributor. Blogsy looks pretty good. What say you Metafilterers? Doable? Pipe dream? Be honest.
I can't be the only person on Metafilter who's succumbed to temptation and gotten their new iPad today. So now that I have it, what apps will make it extra awesome? [more inside]
