Oprah Names Her Favorite IPad Apps

CNN, ABC News and Scrabble ... for Working Out?

By Published on .

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.

At the annual American Magazine Conference, which wrapped up in her hometown of Chicago today, she praised the device for helping her stay up on more breaking news, for which she favors the CNN app and the ABC News app (she loves the globe design). And she's a big fan of Brushes and Sketchbook for her creative outlook. But the one that she said "changed her workouts"? Scrabble. "It keeps my mind off the treadmill ... I can play Scrabble and listen to Bruce Springsteen all at once," she effused.

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.
