Apple shows off list of best iPad Retina display-ready apps

Apple's official list of best Retina display-ready apps includes favorites like The Daily and Mass Effect Infiltrator, among over twenty others.

Earlier this week, ZDNet's Jason Kendrick laid out his list of the best iPad apps to take advantage of the new iPad's Retina display. It's a good list, and includes games like Infinity Blade Dungeons and Mass Effect Infiltrator and apps like Garageband and iPhoto

Today, Apple has dropped a similar group of apps, going as far to even create a separate section in the iTunes store to really feature it. While the apps vary widely, they have all been updated recently in an effort to fully support the high resolution of the new iPad's display.

Curiously, one app absent from the list is the latest version of Amazon's Kindle app, which was updated today with crisper fonts and a variety of other changes.

What is clear, however, is that there's no smarter move or app developers now than updating iPad apps to take advantage of the new display. Just think of all the free publicity.
