The Daily Mail has a lovely story today about 94-year-old gran, Elsie Corner from Manchester, England, who is a massive iPad fan, and who credits the iPad with greatly improving her quality of life. Mrs Corner loves to play Words With Friends on her iPad, sometimes having 16 games on the go at one time. She also uses her iPad to track planes flying over her home with Flight Tracker, as she is near Manchester Airport.
Elsie’s daughter, Jean Holt, said that her mum did previously own a laptop, but was unable to see the cursor and struggled with using the mouse as well. It was Jean who bought her mum the iPad after seeing one in America.“It’s been a wonderful way to keep in touch with my family,” Elsie told The Mail. “I use it nearly all the hours of daylight, 2-3 hours in the morning, then again in the afternoon.”
