    "Who doesn't like the NYT Crossword puzzle? Easy to fill in, graphics are perfect and simple. There are also some more challenging puzzles. I like keeping up to date with the dailies though."

    "Amazon Kindle lets you read any ebook you want, whenever you want. There's a lot of free or nearly-free content, but I think the best use of the app is for borrowing or purchasing new books that you'd otherwise buy in the store or wait on a waiting list for in your local library. It's really satisfying to just choose a book and start reading immediately. The features are nice and a lot of work has been put into making the screen very legible."

    " All Recipes Dinner Spinner Instead of listing a bunch of unrelated formulas, All Recipes Dinner Spinner is a clever app that can understand the user's eating habits, and offers recipes for you. You can, of course, find the formulas for yourself, including the nutritional content (calories, fat, cholesterol, etc.) or processing time."

    "Voice recognition apps usually frustrate older people and this app won't help that at all. The voice recognition on this app leaves a lot to be desired. It barely works at all, actually. You're better off using the voice recognition automatically integrated into your device."

    "Looking for an app your grandmother will love? I know, it's hard to find one for her but if she's anything like my grandma she'll love Beautylish! I got it for my sister at first but then my grandma saw it and she hasn't looked back since! It's full of beauty tips, trends, reviews for various makeups and you can even buy makeup there too! True, my grandma doesn't wear as much makeup today as she used to, but she still loves it and says it has that feminine charm she adores! I bet your grandma will love it too."
