Maily is a fun way for kids of 4 and up to stay in touch with their relatives by email. It's a free iPad app that allows parents to set up a list of email recipients, in the form of headshots.

We all know the drill. As the overlords of the smartphone and tablet markets, the braintrust at Apple very seldom hold sales on their signature devices.
