The Best Apps for the New IPad Retina DisplayBy: Chris Gabbard - March 16, 2012
The new iPad officially went on sale today, and if the long lines outside electronics stores are any indication, sales should be huge.
Unfortunately, not ever app on the market is iPad retina display ready. Apple has upgraded theirs, but that’s to be expected. Some third party apps have not been lucky enough to get things ready for the release. Others plan to capitalize on the new technology by being the first out the door with HD graphics.
A friendly request: don’t freak out at non-retinized iPad apps coming out this week. It’s a lot of damn work.
Updating all of your apps graphics to keep up the new technology has proved to be a daunting task for most developers.
Here are some of the best HD apps out there right now. Expect many more to roll out in the next coming weeks.
You can’t go wrong with the official Apple apps, they were made specifically for the new iPad:
There’s so much power built into iPhoto for iOS, you need to touch it to believe it. Using only your fingers, you can make a blue sky bluer. A landscape greener. Or a smile brighter. From the moment you touch the screen, the way you see things will never be the same.
Whether you’re a musical prodigy or just love creating your own walls of sound, GarageBand for iOS gives you all the tools you need to lay down fresh tracks, have a jam session with friends, and record music anywhere you go.
Follow your interests like never before.
