    I bought an iPad for my retired dad mainly as a photo storage/viewer since he takes a lot of photos but doesn't have a computer (although my mom does). As a way of extending functionality for him, I was wondering if there were any Chinese apps (I can't read but he can) that he might find useful. Maybe a Chinese news app?

    There are several Chinese News apps in the iPad App Store - including some in Chinese (Mandarin - I think) but I don't know how to put the details (in Chinese here!). Search 'China' in the iPad App Store....

    There are several more, too, in English.

    I know I can do a search, but since I can't read Chinese, I wanted some first-hand reviews about which apps might be good from the forum readers here.

    Chinese talking clock app

    There's a new "talking clock" app for iPad called VOX Clock. It tells the time in Mandarin (as well as Japanese, French, English) and it's localized into Chinese. It makes a good bedside alarm clock -- no more fumbling for glasses in the middle of the night, just reach over and tap to hear a pleasant Chinese female voice whisper the current time.
