We all know Oprah is a huge fan of the iPad. In June, she gave her O Magazine staffers $10,000 and an iPad to celebrate the magazine's 10th anniversary. And on Tuesday, she shared her fondness of the device at the annual American Magazine Conference. She credited it for keeping her up to date with what is going on in the world and keeping her entertained while on the treadmill. She gave us a peak into some of her favorite apps for news, entertainment and the ones that help her express her creative side. Check them out below and then share with us some of your favorite apps that you use to keep you entertained and keep you abreast with today’s news. APPY FRIDAY!

I'd say, overall, Oprah picked a pretty decent travel companion for her and her audience members. I do, however, suggest that Oprah bring along some ear plugs for the ride. This group has already proven they can be a rowdy bunch:
