Oprah loves her iPad; reveals her favorite apps

Apple Online Store“We know Oprah’s a fan of the iPad — she gave all her magazine staffers one earlier this year — and she’s spent a fair amount of time finding her favorites among the vast iTunes app store,” Abbey Klaassen reports for Advertising Age.

Oprah’s favorite iPad apps include:
CNN for iPhone ($1.99) (pixel-doubled, we presume)
• ABC News for iPad (free)
• Brushes – iPad Edition ($7.99)
• SketchBook Pro ($7.99)
SCRABBLE for iPad ($9.99) (which she says she plays while on the treadmill???)

Klassen reports, “She also said she reads magazines and newspapers on it. Except, perhaps, her own? The O App hasn’t launched yet but, said O Editor Susan Casey, who interviewed her mag’s namesake, it’s coming Nov. 16.”

  3. Is there a KPFA / KPFK app? There is your non-corporate news. I hope she watches Amy Goodman on DemocracyNow!

  5. As my aunt remarked to me last week: “Hey, that Kindle thing is pretty cool. My friend Stella reads her daily scripture on it and just LOVES it!” (Wait for it.) “So, what else does it do?

    “Uh, well, Auntie, (says I) it doesn’t do ANYTHING else, I’m afraid to say. No internet browsing, no email sending or receiving, no productivity apps, no games, no movies, no music, no individual customization, NO NOTHING!”

    Her rather astonished response: “Then what good is it? I’ve already got a library full of books I haven’t read . . . and I can read them outside too! Looks like a waste of money to me.”

    Well said, Auntie. Well said.
