Since I don't have an ipad, I don't know the answer to that. Since Michael suggested it he may know, he is perhaps the only computer whiz here.
I do know what to do if you can download a copy of WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY.

I don't know if you are still looking for ideas, but you could skin a tree branch and treat it then put it in a ceramic pot and cover it in stones (big enough that they wont be ingested. I think I saw this Idea online, so I dont take credit but it would probably look really nice, and the parrots will love to chew it!
then you could decorate the branche with some nice toys for them to play with!
Good luck!

I make my playstands out of lilac branches and then bracket them with stainless steel bracket to a pine wood base that I made, I replace the branches when needed and the base lasts a long time. I add all kinds of toys to the branches and also rope so they have soft places to perch too.

What I had been thinking of doing for my bird had been to get a small tree native for the bird, and just stick it in a pot with some toys hanging from it and everything. What I had been hoping for was a mini coconut style palm tree to go with a coconut shell topped swing I'll be getting, but no dice on a palm that small and that style. They're everywhere here in Australia around the coast and the native birds love them, especially the cockatoos. Rainbow Lorikeets love bottlebrush bushes, and will feed from the flowers. Stuff like that, just add toys! Simple and it seems like birds would love it in theory. I have yet to try it. I need the bird and the tree first. >_>

The only thing about using trees and such is that you first have to make sure that it is safe for the bird because the bird will chew on it and you can't use any chemical fertilizers or any other chemical on the plant or the ground that it is in.

One of the things I'm good with is plants. I know to get a native tree, and the examples I gave were ones that were safe to specific species that they feed off- that's the kind of tree I meant. As for the chemicals, well, that's pretty easy, no different to don't use grey water to water fruit trees. I do want to do this and I know how to be safe about it. =D I figured my examples being feeding trees for both would have made people realise that's the kind of tree I meant. This happens to me a lot. >_>
By native tree I mean one native to the parrot. One it feeds off. No better way to make it happier than a native feeding tree full of toys, but it'd have to be a small one for me to be indoors. If anyone else does want to try this, well, a simple reptile UV light or other UV light can help the tree if it's meant to be outdoors and not getting enough light. Pruning does wonders, too, to encourage new growth.
