The new iPad has only been out for a short while but developers are updating their apps to support the Retina Display almost daily. Kudos to Apple for apparently making apps easy to update for the high-resolution display.
I am frequently asked which apps I use the most on my new iPad. The apps in this gallery are not the only ones on my new iPad, but they are the most heavily used. Odds are if you see me with the iPad in hand, you will find it running one of the apps on this list.
You'll find good games, top productivity apps, and special utilities that turn the iPad into good work tools. All of these apps are available in the iTunes App Store. They range in price from free to $9.99.
Air Display is a useful utility that turns the iPad into a second monitor for any Mac or Windows PC. It connects to the PC wirelessly via Wi-Fi, and makes good use of the iPad's Retina Display. The app has not been updated to fully support the Retina Display, but already renders the display in brilliance that makes a desktop monitor look downright bad.
Note that Air Display is also available for some Android tablets, and in my tests is just as good as on the iPad.
The Angry birds and green pigs are back, and in full hi-def brilliance. Never has Angry Birds looked so stunning, and the new space gameplay is a big time-waster. Additional levels are available for purchase in the game for $0.99.
