That's not the worst use of an iPad that I've heard of.

Wasn't this covered by The Colbert Report a few weeks ago?

Where's the app for "I want to get the fark out of this place"?

I don't think orangutans are that picky about their eating and drinking.

Seriously have these people using Ipads for this kind of thing not heard of FLASHCARDS.

Or a poster.

Lets see- I could use this $500 piece of equipment in a dirty environment. Or I could print some photos of the food options and glue them on a piece of foam or poster board.

Also- please stop using your 'flashlight' app while camping and then freaking out because your battery is low. Ok I'm going to admit that I'm old (at heart), crochety, and I hate fancy phones.

And the apes are really happy with the free app for awhile until they realize it only has two food choices and to get more you need to start paying 99 cents per new fruit.

An ape app? How very apropos.

Does the orangutan care about "YAY!" clap clap clap?

They're not 3 year old humans.

Do apes qualify for a credit or debit card?

I'm sure the orangutans do not care whether it's an iPod or a sheet of cardboard with pictures.

I AM sure they are happy to have someone inquire about what food they'd actually like for a change.

Ooook?

Get back to your library, and stop playing with the Internet spells.

Well, yes, of course but there's no iPad app to handle L-space navigation right now, so I'm afraid you're stuck in the pen for a while longer.
