Please recommend apps/games to improve reading skills

Are there any iPhone/iPad apps or games that would help a 10-year old with her reading? When she reads out loud she does really well for a few minutes but quickly starts to skip words or guess them rather than trying to read what's on the page. She loves computer games so I was wondering if a reading game might motivate her.

Zooming forward with the Xoom

I'm deploying a fleet of Motorola Xoom Android tablets to a couple dozen skilled trade workers. What apps do I need to include to help make my life and the lives of the workers as easy as possible? No internet access other than a few approved sites (managed by firewall and a wireless profile), but they'll be getting their email and calendar (all powered by GAFE) too.

No Yorker

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 the app. 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

iPad Apps for Chinese or Vietnamese Adults

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.
