George Bush's Favorite iPad App Revealed (VIDEO)

President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush may be BlackBerry addicts, but Apple's iPad is their new must-have gadget.

In an interview for Yahoo's Newsmakers series, Laura Bush said her husband "loves" his iPad.

"He reads the Wall Street Journal on it in the morning before the paper even is thrown," she noted.

And his favorite app?

"Scrabble is the one that George now seems to be playing constantly," she said. "Like, I'm trying to get his attention; 'I'm still here.'"

Laura Bush said she has a Kindle and BlackBerry, but the iPad is at the top of her gadget wishlist: "I'm hoping for an iPad for my birthday. It's coming up next week."

"I love reading on [the Kindle],"she said. "I love being able to make the font larger. At my age, it's really nice to be able to have that."

It's still RIM over Apple when it comes to smartphones, however. "We're both always on our BlackBerrys," Laura Bush remarked.
