Skype is not a new app but I find I use it a lot on the new iPad. The ability to keep in touch with family and colleagues remotely is a big boon, and the front camera of the new iPad works well with Skype.
Facetime is a nice video chat app, but most of my contacts are running Skype so that is what I use most.
There are games and then there are games that are totally immersive, and this one is a great example of the latter. The graphics are already stunning on the new iPad, without Retina Display support, and with headphones plugged in the game takes you away to battles far, far away.
Those looking for a simple app to help make the best of those home movies should look no further than iMovie. It makes good use of the Retina Display to allow tweaking and improving movies for uploading to YouTube within the app.
Surprisingly sophisticated movies and trailers can be produced with the tools in iMovie on the iPad.
