    Can I?

    I'm expecting delivery of my iPad this afternoon, it's been a long two weeks. My job involves a lot of 'meet and greet', at airports around the country and I usually hold up a piece of paper with a name scribbled on it to pick up my customers. I was wondering if there is an app that would allow me to use the iPad for this purpose?
    Many thanks.

    do a search for scribble in the app store, plenty of writing apps, both free and paid

    For sure there are a lot of Office type apps that would enable you to do this - you can make the font size as large and as colourful as you want and customise it with your company or personal logo to make it more recognisable.
    Almost any of the multitude of Office apps would do this.

    Any note taking app should be able to do that.

    If you want to write the name by hand, either Notes Plus, or Penultimate will work.

    For typed notes, any note app will work, such as Pages.

    Pages and Penultimate are probably the better choices, as they can hide most of the interface. Or you could just type the name, take a screenshot by pressing Home&Power button and than just show the screenshot when you are standing at the airport.

    There's an app called "Best LED Machine" which lets you turn your screen into a display of whatever message you type into it. You can also choose color, letter size, scrolling speed, etc etc. Large yellow letters scrolling on a dark red background are very eye-catching...
