iPad Rss/Google Reader app with passcode lock?

The title says it all. Is there an iPad Rss/Google Reader app with a passcode lock for privacy? I tried accessing GReader in a third party web browser which has a passcode lock but the website's a bit crappy.

Best iPad stylus for non-artist writer?

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's the best online service for an all iOS household to store and share photos?

A friend of mine is moving to an all-iOS home infrastructure: - iPhones - iPad - airprint printer - Apple TV No computer. Their died and they're not buying a new one. They don't have much or any local music or video content, but do have a ton of photos (like over 16GB by some large amount). What's the best way that you can think of, without them having to buy a computer, of storing photos and sharing them amongst all of their devices and with other people. Interested in hearing about both free and paid services. Also interested in camera app recommendations, other app recommendations, and service recommendations. This question gives some interesting camera app recommendations and I'll send that to him as well. Thank you.

Help me blog with my iPad

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.

Help me help my elderly parents learn to use an iPad.

Once my iPad 3 arrives this Friday, I'm planning on giving my 1st generation iPad to my parents. They're both in their 60s and fairly computer illiterate. I've tried to teach them the basics, but what apps or websites could I pre-install on the iPad when I give it to them to help them learn at their own pace?

I want the iPad3!

I've been waiting for the new iPad 3 but I've never bought an Apple product when it first comes out. What is the usual procedure? Can I pre-order online March 7 after the announcement so I get it the day it is released or will I be forced to stand in line the day it comes out? Standing in line may not be possible depending on work...

What's the deal with syncing contacts between Address Book, iCloud and Gmail???

In short: how do I sync all my contacts between Mac OS X Address Book, iOS, iCloud.com, and Gmail.com? Not as short: In olden days, I used the Address Book app on my Mac to store all my contacts. Everything in there would sync to MobileMe (and by extension, iPhone, iPad and me.com) and Google (for Gmail). After iCloud was released in October, turning on contact syncing between Address Book and iCloud resulted in a message that said if iCloud contact syncing is turned on Google syncing must be turned off. Googling tells me that lots of people are having this problem, but I'm not finding a solution within all the noise. What am I missing? Any settings to change? Any software? Thanks in advance.

Where can I stay informed on new killer apps?

Frequently I notice that iPhone/iPad apps initially go on sale initially at a reduced price. Moog's Animoog app, for example, debuted for a limited time at $0.99 and now costs $30. Obviously this is a strategy to get buzz and positive reviews. However, I'm bummed for missing this deal. Are there any websites that give the reader a heads up on killer apps that have just come out and which are being offered for practically nothing?

How to set up video chat on iPad with Hotmail

How do I set up my iPad for video chatting with Hotmail? I just recently reconnected with some former deaf students of mine, after about 25 years (thank you, Facebook). We have been communicating by email but written language is not optimal. One of my former students has asked that I video chat with him via Hotmail. I have created Hotmail account, now what? I'd like to be able to do this directly through my iPad, as well as by connecting my iPad to a PC and using it as a webcam. Also any tips for placement of the iPad for use while signing would be appreciated.

iPad Disappears from Find my iPhone app

Recovering a lost iPad. This afternoon I suffered the grave misfortune of leaving my relatively new iPad 2 in a seatback pocket on an airplane. When I realized what I had done upon arriving in my hotel room, I immediately called the airline and submitted a report. I also attempted to locate the iPad using the Find My iPhone app. Although the app quickly located my other devices, it could not locate the iPad, presumably because the plane was winging its way to another destination. I ordered a remote lock and a message to be sent to the device as soon as it connects, and I went about changing the passwords for services I had used from the device. I have periodically checked the device over the last few hours to see if it shows up, but a few minutes ago, the iPad disappeared entirely from the list of my devices in the app. What would cause it to disappear? I assume this means I am screwed?

Can I get Google Currents on iPad 2 to update automatically when asleep?

My iPad 2 usually is usually asleep with its Smart Cover closed. Recently, after leaving it asleep for several days, I took it somewhere without network access and used Google Currents, but found all the articles were several days old. I have Settings > Sync > Update set to Automatic, but apparently that doesn't help if I don't have the device on (or maybe if I don't run Currents). Is there a way to get it to wake up every day and update Google Currents without me having to do it manually? [more inside]

Delete iPad data, yeah?

My folks are mailing their iPad to Joe's Cheap Screen Repair, and I'm urging them to delete all their data before sending it off. They're afraid deleting/factory reset means all their emails and games are lost and gone forever. Am I insane, can't they just sync to iTunes when it returns in the mail and get everything back as they left it? Apologies for this Sunday night brain fart.
