Recommended apps for a 65 year old woman?
My wife and I (along with her sisters) are chipping in and getting my 65 year old mother in law an iPad. She's only learned how to use a computer in the last few years and she really only uses it for looking at pictures and sending some emails. Just wondering what would be some good apps to put on the iPad for her. She likes sudoku, knitting, cooking and stuff like that. Any suggestions?

Epicurus. It is a great cooking app.
iBook with an iTunes giftcard would be nice too.

My mom loves bejeweled! Has since I got her hooked in it for her palm eons ago.
I'd probably go with the iTunes card though and a list of some for her to look at on her own.

I would get her some pre installed books/novels
and some pre installed movies and then if she really likes all that, get her an itunes gift card and show her how to use it.
Weather HD is a nice App and if your local paper has as online version you can put a direct liknk to that. Or CNN.com
Dictionary (because for some strange reason old people are always looking thing up)
Show her how to use YouTube
Oh and also, you could get her one of those Medical books cause old people are always looking that stuff up too!

65 is the new 45 - save 'old' for geezers. I'd start at 80.

as a 64yr old female...
My favourites in no particular order.
Koi Pond for older friends in their 80s / 90s and young grandkids to show them how a touch screen works.
Bright puzzles = jigsaws
Sudoku Real Edition
Star Walk for iPad
Nick's Ultimate Word Search
McSolitaire Gold (Retina HD)
Converter for iPad (Units & Currencies)
Osmos for iPad
PocketMoney - chequebook, budgets, expenses
Zen Bound 2 Universal.
Hope she loves it ....... 65 is one of the best times of life.
From my iPad. ;-)
